Maybe!

Maybe it was just chance or a well-played plan

but like a fairy tale the woman

became acquainted with the much older man

making him spill his coffee

with that virtuous flicker of long eyelashes

that upon his jacket splashes!

 

A slight blush as it was he who apologised

their eyes met and he was smitten

caught was it chemistry or a hidden agenda

to him it was magical luck

had recently got divorced that still really hurt

how good it felt to once again flirt!

 

Blinded by a beautiful woman chatted happily

both becoming touchy feely

drunk more than he usually did that evening

had verbal diarrhea was happy

remembered walking out with this female

from there it was a memory fail!

 

With a jolt awoke in a bed with white sheets

alone his clothes strewn around

a trail of water droplets led to the bathroom

with a throbbing headache

his desperation to vomit and pee was intense

as none of this did make any sense!

 

Staggering through the open door at the sink

the trail ended on the steamy mirror

a word Sucker written saw his own pasty face

then a dark figure from behind

hit him over the head again lost consciousness

last thought his future ominous!

 

Aroused with a slap and loud shouting in his ear

handcuffed to a bare dirty table

two men sat staring from across the small room

demanding to know where she was

where had he hidden the body of their comrade

confused at the question so afraid!

 

His thoughts scrambled by drugs drink and brutality

engulfed in a bizarre situation

here with no answers help or any means of escape

vague flashes of a bar and a girl

as the pain in his head began to get more intense

nothing to him made any sense!

 

After endless questions the interrogation stopped

dragged and thrown into a cell

he had been a banker who had let his guard down

and given them pass codes

while he had been detained had ransacked his flat

of no more use he was hit with a bat!

 

A week later his remains were pulled out of the river

back in the same up market bar

a young woman approached the middle-aged man

he was an executive of a large firm

how his ego was raised as she smiled and spoke

then gently his hand she did stroke!

Late!

She was lost in a strange town late at night

feeling the worst from the booze

had been separated from her best friend

found herself in a street of terraced

houses many boarded up and vandalised

her situation had not analysed!

 

Sweating had to vomit it projected outward

into the pitch black of an alley way

almost falling but a graffiti covered wall

kept her on unstable aching legs

her eyes watery began to feel unprotected

alone afraid and dejected!

 

Noises around her footsteps a bottle smashed

a rasping growl from her right

there was something close by in the alleyway

certain it was coming towards her

started to walk then tried to run but tumbled

onto broken glass crumpled!

 

Sharp pain was added to all her other misery

tried to crawl leaving a blood trail

there was nobody about she was isolated

could move no more exhausted

again heard a guttural growl then by her side

a dog stood had nowhere to hide!

 

It was huge snarling fangs exposed dripping

saliva all over her broken body

the eyes black that overwhelmed her soul

the stench of its breath nauseous

screamed frenziedly certain this the end

with no energy her being to defend!

 

Soon lost consciousness through exhaustion

and oozing from the glass wounds

suddenly found herself being rudely shaken

then a voice she thought was an angel

at first was distant yet a growing awareness

a determination to survive did caress!

 

Blurred vision cleared and there was her friend

paramedics were in attendance

she now laid upon a cot within the ambulance

as a chill made her shudder

but just before they parted she saw once more

the dog watching as they shut the door!

 

Realised this terror had not been a hallucination!

Trapped!

The red lights flashed on and off rhythmically

as the heavy door slammed shut!

They were trapped within the war-time bunker

not abandoned as they had thought.

Thinking it was fun an adventure to explore

then a disturbing loud roar!

 

No way to retreat now the only way forward

a loud pearcing siren sounded.

The intermittent light showing a dank tunnel

going endlessly into the distance!

Slipping on the carved out granite single track

afraid what maybe at their back.

 

Downwards they headed gathering momentum

the wierd noises increased.

Crashing into each other as they were halted

at the doors of a large lift.

Without warning shuddering the doors opened

falling in it soon started to descend!

 

An awful smell made some reach and others vomit

there was no interior light.

Visibility was zero but it felt sticky and very hot

eventually the lift stopped.

They dreaded what waited for them down here

doors opened their vision clear.

 

Bodies laid everywhere one was in the lift to

many in white lab coats.

What had they come across trapped in here

everything had been smashed .

Afraid to take a step into this man-made hell

a body from the ceiling fell!

 

Mutilated laid motionless there before them

intuitively knew it was above.

Everyone reluctantly took a few steps forward

the last went to make his exit.

Then the lift started to rise trapping his head

and more gore was rapidly spread!

 

The four remaining heard a frantic female voice

warning them to run from there.

Instinctively they sprinted for their survival

just as a large shape landed behind!

Hiding amongst the pipes where they had been

their presence had sensed and seen!

 

Four remained certain they would be caught

to their left side a woman called.

Slowing and turning she had their attention

beckoning to head in her direction.

Confused and petrified but glad for a direction

making a strange collection!

 

The monster was rapidly gaining on their position

their energy was nearly spent.

Bruised and bloody as they hit the jagged walls

came to a huge metal door.

She pressed in the code it lifted a couple of feet

to get under was no easy feat!

 

But once again the last lad was just to portly

hearing the thing was close.

Had to bring the metal shutter back down

the screams were the last sounds.

It was much darker the noise of water clear

reaching the edge the drop was sheer!

 

No time for hesitation jumped into flowing water

which took them to freedom!

The woman and two of the group emerged alive

hopefully safe for the moment.

Exhausted collapsed on the bank down river

on a muddy and foal smelling sliver.

 

But what had happened it was obviously a secret

would survivors need to be eliminated?
