The life you save may be...your own?

Dead End Jump

by Elle Pepper

It started, as most good things do, with a cliché. A living, breathing cliché; a man so normal that he was out of place standing in my front room dripping wet. His clothes were normal for a rainy town, a trench coat, boots, a hat, and white gloves.


I hadn't gotten his name or the name of this dumpy little town. All I knew was that this was the third time he had come to me like this.


"Mr. Saunders," he said, pronouncing my name correctly, "if you want to live, I suggest you come with me." Three times now, I had heard him say that, but something made me pause this time instead of slamming the door in his face. I saw him look down at his watch and then back out into the rain. "We don't have time for this."
