Flash fiction: Blackouts (13)


Three dream catchers on the porch, three laptops, three pairs of pictures, threes’ of everything and Anna knew she was in the right place. This was undoubtedly “Harrison” aka “H”‘s house. For a genius, he paid little attention to his passwords; he was still the same man after all.

Images of a beautiful brunette woman were plastered all around the messy apartment. Most of them, disturbing. Anna gaped at the somewhat hundreds of images of Allison Blake. This wasn’t going to be the re-union she had hoped for.

A particular isolated picture captured her attention. It was of a stone walled, ancient looking church with one of those rare tower bells. She remembered how she had first met H coming home from a church. Her adrenalin kicked in. She realised what was happening, H was stalking his new prey just as he had stalked her. Anna made a resolve there in, if it was the last thing she did, she would save this woman, she would save Allison Blake. She got to work, beginning with H’s laptop.
