Explanations Forthcoming... Maybe? (3/22)
An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o
I wake up to my phone ringing. My first thought: Oh, hell! Am I late for work? Again?
The next sound I notice is the shower running. Good. If my wife, Mari, is in the shower, I'm in good shape. That bit of stress off my mind, I reach out from under the sheets, and fumble to grab my phone off the nightstand.
The caller ID clears any remaining cobwebs.
What the hell?! I sit up, and realize I'm in a hotel room. An expensive one, by the looks of it. I bolt out of bed, and throw open the curtains. I have no idea what city I'm in, but recognize the writing on signs on surrounding buildings, I'm somewhere in Korea.
The shower turns off as I answer the phone, thinking, How am I going to explain this?
"Where the hell have you been?" Yup. It's Mari. And she's pissed.
"I... don't know, exactly, but..."
My heart almost stops when, from behind me, I hear, "Who are you talking to, darling?"
"DARLING?! Who the f..." I end the call.
I'm too terrified (or is it excited) to turn around.
