Running from my captor, I swam across the channel. No sooner had I got to land he came after me in his boat.

All I could think of was, run, run! If he catches me he will kill me! I must run and I must hide!

What do I do? I have ran so much I can barely catch my breath but he is still hot on my trail.

I told him I didn't know where the jewels were because I had nothing to do with them. It's Robert, not me!

Finally! He is leaving and I can breathe again.

  1. Exciting take PJ! Right of the bat! Great job! I lean picture the escape theme and I hope this man leaves her alone and goes after her husband. I wonder if she loves her husband or if she’ll be glad to be rid of him? This piece also reminds me of the first mystery tale ever written by Wilkie Collins called ‘The Moonstone’ it’s one of my favorite Victorian books and very exciting as is your story. Also about a missing stone, the ‘moonstone’ of course 🙂

    • I’m not sure is Robert is her husband or not, but I don’t think she wants to get rid of him. She was running so I don’t think they heard her say Robert’s name. Thank you so much for your comment, Mandi!

I would love to read your thoughts...
