Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.

*****Cassie’s Point of View*****
Cassie came to slowly. She thought she saw people moving around her, but they quickly disappeared. Was she alone? Where was she? She tried to move and sit up, but she was dizzy and fell back down. She closed her eyes again. She re-opened them, but didn’t believe what she was seeing. Was she hallucinating again. Oh no, not more drugs ran through her mind. She looked around and was stunned to see that she appeared to be in a cell with bars enclosing it all the way to the floor. No way to slip out underneath for sure. She could see the large padlock on the door.
Memories slowly returned and she remembered seeing and talking to Wayne and then his two buddies appeared. She didn’t remember much after a sharp sting in her butt. She was lying on top of a comforter, but the pile under it smelled of urine. Eww! She would tuck the comforter around her if it hadn’t been in touch with that nasty smelling pile beneath it.
The comforter itself looked new and they may have gone to buy it for just this occasion. She wanted out of here, but all the yelling she was doing did not seem to be effective. Obviously they weren’t in any rush to get her out of the cell. But as her thinking started to clear she realized they probably weren’t in any hurry since she couldn’t go anywhere. Looking around she saw a case of water and a bucket were the only other contents of the cell. That didn’t bode well. She could live without food for awhile, but they made sure she had water and a bucket to pee in although that would overflow fast enough. How gross!
*****Wayne’s Point of View*****
Well this should bring that bitch down a notch or two. She has a migraine last night, but here she is back to work tonight. The take down didn’t take long. He, Butch, and Rocky had gotten good at this. She could sit there for a while and think about the lousy situation she is in. He would wait for several days at least to pass before checking on her. No food, but she had water and a pee bucket which he thought was nice of him for giving her anything. She even had a new comforter to protect her from the urine-smelling ones below her. If she had died during the wait for him to arrive it would be all the more easier. He hated to actually have to kill them so he usually just screwed them if he was in the mind to and sent Butch and Rocky to do whatever they had a mind to.
His new identity was ready. The new car was parked at the airport long term parking and then he was off to find a new town. He preferred the small towns to the large ones although it was probably easier to disappear from the larger ones. He had some maps and would drive until he found a town he liked. Then set up roots. He had lasted quite a while here before this bitch arrived on his horizon. He was definitely still attracted to her. He might have to screw this one first.
*****Peter’s Point of View*****
“Look, officer, I am trying to tell you I was trailing a vehicle that was before this guy and I wanted to see where it went and so I was watching them and didn’t expect this vehicle to slam his brakes on. I know that is wrong, but the girl in that van I am pretty sure she was drugged and taken against her will. I was watching the whole thing.
“Son, please slow down. Why were you following her?”
“Look, this isn’t going to sound right probably, but we were long time boyfriend and girlfriend and when I refused to get a job like her, she broke up with me. I was told she found a new boyfriend and I was waiting outside of her job hoping to talk to her, but this gray, old, nondescript Chevy van backed in next to her and waited for her to come out of work. She works at the Angel’s Cove Restaurant. When she came out she headed to her car and when the guy stepped out she sort of briefly hesitated and then continued towards him. They talked for a couple of minutes and his two friends got out. I thought she was leaning in to kiss him, but it looked funny and a few minutes later they sort of shoved her into the back of the van and took off with me following them behind this car. I saw them put on their turn signal up ahead, but when I hit this guy I never saw them turn so I can’t tell you exactly where. Listen you got to find her. I love that girl. Geesh I can’t believe this is happening.”
The police took a report and said they would try to check it out, but so far she wasn’t reported missing so they can’t really do anything until she was officially reported missing.
