55 Flash Fiction Friday #47: Chapter 39 - Gheraao


Some stories are the same in any language.
The explosive report snatched the smile from her lips in an instant. Her knuckles whitened on the door handle, expecting the worst. The lorry staggered to a halt, its left outer rear tire a shredded tangle of rubber. The driver, climbing down to inspect the damage collapsed in the dust, felled by an unseen assassin.

Notes:
Gheraao: ambush

We dragons didn't see this coming. An ambush and a new word. We expected the new word but not the ambush. How horrible.
Now we have to come back next week.
Our 55 is ready.

Oh! No! Just when she was starting to relax a little, let her guard down a tiny bit. I hope she is running, fast and far. But...I fear she may be in trouble. :))
