This the fourth installment in “Monday finish the story” by Barbara W Beacham. The previous installments are here:
Part1, Part2, Part3


They finally made their escape; Maria glanced at her half-brother:
“This might be a little bumpy; good we had plan D.1”
The horizon behind them was a absorbed in a tangerine howl; heatwaves came right before the jeep rode forty meters on the shockwave.
“Wonder if Pa took plan E”, Pedro mused.
“Ha, I think Ma would go for F directly”

Don Francisco and Donna Juanita faced each other for the first time in decades. The soft music brought a softness to Juanitas stature:
“How sweet that they found love at last”
Don Francisco smiled but still kept a safe distance.
“I think they will be back soon — on foot”
he looked at his Rolex:
“Just about now they are out of gas — plan G”

Much later — a young couple came walking through the jungle to a seedy motel. Smiling the receptionist said:
“Welcome — your parents are in the lounge”

  1. I’ve been away and missed your stories. I just went back and read them all. This is quite a tale of intrigue you’re weaving here. Keep up the good work.

  2. Great story to go along with the others! Nice take on escape! Thank you for participating and I hope that you stay tuned for next week’s challenge! Be well! ^..^

  3. What a unexpected addition to the saga! I was expecting more mayhem and instead we get to see a softer side of the family. I love it and can’t wait to see where you take it next. 🙂

  4. I don’t think dysfunctional is the word for that family, Bjorn. It sounds like they belong on one of those shock TV programs. A movie could be made about them. 😀 Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
