Excerpt of Vengeance 

Each step reverberated as an echoing slap against the concrete floor as she hurried into the outdoor parking ramp. Her car sat in the dark bottom level underground, her assigned place. She was normally afraid when she went to her car, but today, she was even more uneasy than usual. It felt almost as if someone was watching her. Even in the early afternoon, the ramp was always dark and chilly. She wanted to run, but didn’t want to look foolish. Fear had her walking faster and faster until she found herself jogging. Relief washed over her as she saw her car. Slowing down, she caught her breath. Feeling foolish for having such an over-active imagination, she put the key in the car’s door lock. A rough voice behind her gave her the chills, freezing her in place.

“Hey, baby, give me your purse.”

Suddenly, the man spun her around. Numbness caused her to drop her keys as shock set in. The thug began to pull at her bag. After a moment, surprise became anger, and she slapped at him. It soon was clear her small size was no match for the thief. She screamed. Instinctively, she kept a tight hold on her bag. Even if there wasn’t much money in it, she didn’t want to give it up without a fight. The thug backhanded her across the face. Audra shrieked in pain and let go of the bag, so she could hold her injured cheek. Her eye felt as if it would explode.

She saw him running away around the corner though the blurry film of her tears. In vain, she tried to get her hands to stop shaking as she fished around in her coat pocket for her cell phone. With relief, she found it. Dialing the police. she heard a loud male scream. Startled, Audra dropped her phone. She crouched down in the dim light, patting the ground under the car for the small device. A noise behind her made her jump up. She narrowly missed hitting her head on the side mirror. As she stood up, what caught her eye in the mirror made her gasp.

Spinning around, Audra found herself face to face with the tall, masked vigilante that had been on the TV news and the papers. She could have sworn his eyes were red!  Her heart raced. Adrenaline pushed her to run, yet she stayed there. She stuttered, “What...what do you want?”

His dark chuckle rolled out of his throat and sent chills down her spine. Inhuman yet beautiful was the only way she could describe his voice. “A beautiful woman should never ask a man that question.”  He pushed her bag at her. She clutched it to her, unsure of what to say or do.  When she looked up again, he was gone. Terrified, Audra found her keys. She shook so badly, it seemed like years before she was able to get into her car and hear the comforting purr of the ignition. Locking the doors, she revved her engine. Slamming her foot to the gas, she peeled rubber like the devil was chasing her, and she felt sure she’d just met him.

What did she do now?  She didn’t want to call the police, because she believed in what he was doing, and the police wanted to arrest him. Crime fighting was as illegal as crime itself if you didn’t wear a badge. She just wanted to get out of the dark and go home. Afraid if she told anyone in the building they’d call the police, putting her rescuer at risk of exposure, she just kept driving.
