Finish the story begins with: “They finally made their escape.”
‘They finally made their escape in a jeep with an Alaska license plate’.
Missy closed the book wanting to know what the various characters did after the escape. Unfortunately that was the end of the novel. ‘Life is about escaping – be it from a place; from a relationship; from need or from oneself’, she thought.
John, her husband, looked at the cold cup of tea in front of her. These episodes of abstraction invariably annoyed him – ‘why do you read so much fiction’?
Missy looked at him gloomily; waved her hands at objects all around her and said, ‘There is no dearth of reality in my life. I need to escape from all this’.
