I shout for help, hoping someone, anyone, hears me.
Everyone is gone. They heeded the warning and left hours ago.
Glancing down at the watch my husband gave me when we first married, I notice the time: ten minutes to eight. I’m fucked.
Any minute now the demolition crew will blow this basement into a gazillion pieces. I imagine my body combusting like an overcooked dinner that had been left in the microwave for far too long on the highest power. My arms would be found somewhere on FDR Drive. My legs would smack the roof of a nearby cab. I thought about my dentist, Dr. Sabbagh, having to identify my skull using dental records. And my mother in Westchester; I can already hear her saying, “I told Piper she should’ve never gotten married to someone as good-looking as Boden Adler.”
My hands, cut and bloody from fighting while trying to defend myself, start to shake uncontrollably. Reaching for the edge of the cage that I’m locked into, I throw myself onto the mesh metal with every ounce of energy left inside me, praying the door comes loose.
Locked from the other side, it doesn’t budge.
Fear pounds in my heart, blood thumps through my ears. The florescent lights that have given me hope like a warm blanket for the last hour fade to darkness.
Exhausted, I surrender, collapsing onto the cold cement floor.
“You got your chance. You should’ve left when I told you,” the voice yells from the top of the stairs. “Goodbye.”
Never in a million years did I think I’d die like this.
