A train rumbled past outside the window, reminding her that life still existed beyond these four walls. She wondered again how long it had been since fresh air had entered this room with the stillness leaving her suffocating, not unlike being buried alive. The bulky man wheezed behind the ornately carved desk, stacked high with papers and manila files.  The only respite to the blandness of his desk was an old ochre paperweight from Uluru proclaiming proudly in midnight blue lettering that I climbed the rock.

He coughed suddenly and indicated a seat in front of his desk.

Lisa, you are teasing your reader with what feels like the beginning of an intriguing story. I want so much to know what is happening. Can you please write part 2?

Why did he cough? Was he taken aback by her feat?

I remember this story, Lisa but re-read parts 1, 2 and 3 to remind myself of where you left it. Each episode, so intriguing, and I am still wondering what door she will choose!

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
