Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts Friday Fictioneers. Each week Rochelle chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

As she tried to follow him, she was ushered into a waiting car. “There’s no time,” said the ambassador. “We have to get you to a place of safety.”
Hours later, looking through a window of the isolated farmhouse, she wondered just how safe she was.
