A Polite Introduction

Jane ignored the damage to Q’s latest vehicular toy as she rammed it through the hotel lobby entrance. Following the man with the bulging backpack onto the third floor, she broke down the door only to find him ready with an explosive. He threw it at her.

She crashed through the floor. Falling sheet rock and splintered boards announced her arrival as she landed on the foot of a king size bed. Rising from the dust, she noticed the two wide-eyed people in bed.

Brushing off the debris, she winked at her involuntary hosts, politely introducing herself: “Bond, Jane Bond.”

I always thought that if I ever fell through the floor of a hotel room, landing on some soft surface below, I’d introduce myself as “Bond, Jane Bond.” Here’s to hoping that never, ever happens. I’m pretty sure the reality would be brutal, not at all like we see on TV or in the movies.
This week’s photographer is Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, our wonderful and hard-working Friday Fictioneer host. You can read her story here.

  1. A fun story and Ian Fleming would be proud! (Please try not to fall through the floor of a hotel room!)
