The week seemed longer and hotter than necessary. The atrocious insects practically gnawed at her. The days blazed, and the nights sweltered. Ellen Kincaid thought this to be the worst vacation ever. She wanted Sunday afternoon to hurry up and end her suffering.
Her boyfriend wanted to go camping by Lake James in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Raised in the country, Mark Jessup claimed he wanted to give Ellen the experiences not found in her big city life. In the three years they'd dated, he took her on every outdoor event imaginable. She hated them all. Secretly, she thought he enjoyed her misery.
Ellen woke up in the tent alone. The pitch-black night made it impossible to see her watch to tell the time, but she knew Mark often stepped out for some cooler night air. Having no woodland skills and afraid to be out in the dark, Ellen suffered, cooped up in the tent until dawn. The humid night made the tent feel like a sauna. Desperate for some fresh air, she felt brave enough to join him.
No answer came.
