#FlashTag @monologging @ Meg was missing. Arthur was searching. The ransom note was published in the paper.

#FlashTag@ Meg died days ago. Her baby lived. When the search is over, he will be welcome: finally.

#FlashTag@ He didn’t enjoy feeling like he ended up on the right side of a Gillian Flynn novel, but he knew it could be worse.

#FlashTag@ Trouble on the tracks. The train screeched, stopped. A shadow loomed. “Arthur Fox?” The officer asked. “This way please.”

#FlashTag@ Arthur looked at the hand on his arm. “This way” would lead only to white walls & sympathetic faces. No release.

#FlashTag@ They passed through cars. The last was empty. “Have a cigarette,” the conductor said, dispensing pauses.

#FlashTag@ “All aboard,” Arthur smoked & mocked his captor, thinking of the baby. “You have us all now & I’ll never know why.”
