Finding Fred

Carly leaped out of her Uber, panicked beyond belief. She tossed the driver some bills and ran for the door of the impound lot. Had she made it in time? A non-responsive twist of the door knob told her what she had feared…the lot was closed. And Fred was closed in with it.
Now what? She turned her back to the door, and slid to the ground, chewing on her lip as she considered her options. Something like this had never happened to her before. She had no knowledge of how to get her car out, and save Fred. Maybe they had an after hours number? She checked on her cell phone, hope rising for a moment…but no, they didn’t.
Damn her soon-to-be-former business partner for doing this. Yes, technically the car was a business vehicle, but this was over the top cruel. Petra knew she typically kept Fred with her during deliveries, so to purposely call and have the car towed was not just inconvenient, but could hurt or kill Fred. With a heart full of rage, Carly stood. Time to take matters into her own hands.

    1. Depends on what the words are next week … hopefully “dead” or “killed” or “arrested” aren’t in there, or things might take a tragic turn.
