Cats and Dogs
Anna always thought twice about getting in a lift with a man. But it was nine flights of stairs. She’d been away all day and her greyhound hated storms.
The lights dimmed.
After 8 minutes he’d taken off his jacket, revealing huge arms that bristled with tattoos. Not many men made her feel small, but with him she felt like a kitten trapped in a cage with a Rottweiler.
When he sat down on the floor, after 53 minutes, she began to relax.
After 2 hours and 47 minutes, the door finally opened.
Neither of them got out.
