Stuck With My Archenemy
SOON TO BE PUBLISHED
"I didn't mean to, I promise." I gulped. "It just sort of happened. The map just magically slipped through my fingers before I could stop it." My voice gradually got lower and lower as I watched him look at me with an expression that instantly revealed to me that I wasn't making any sense. At all.
"Please can we just...move on?" I said desperately. We were not getting anywhere by just standing there whilst Jack tried to get the truth out of me. Which was certainly not going to happen.
"Move on?" Jack scoffed disbelievingly and stepped closer towards me, still glaring at me. "You just destroyed our only chance of finding a way home! How can we just move on when we have absolutely nothing to help us find our way back? You can't be that stupid!"
Brenda Hoffman works for a company that tours their staff annually for at least a week of rest and of course, work relation. Jack Nicoles is the CEO of that company and Brenda is just a common worker. They hate each other's guts because of an incident that occurred at the company months ago, they were never on good terms since then. Jack blames Brenda for that misfortune and Brenda blames Jack for being so naïve.
But when they get abandoned by their bus driver on their way to a retreat on an unknown mountain with nothing but their backpacks, maps and each other's company, they are forced to cooperate with each other in order to leave there in one piece.
Can they cope with each other and let go of the past that seems to linger in every part of their lives and move on together? Or will they go on behaving like immature brats and stay stranded on that mountain for who knows how long?
