Never Say Die (Part 4)

Rating: 5.0

Please read parts 1-3 first

The search party went out
About three hours after
Her husband had awoken
And realized she was gone

Nearly every cop available
Had been called out
To walk her route
They thought...maybe a heart attack

They found her about an hour into the search
Her prayers were answered
They stayed strong for her
She was one of thier own

Though it ripped through thier hearts
And they wanted to cry
Though it sickened them...
They remained strong...for her

They called for a supervisor
They called for forensics
They set up a perimeter
And processed the scene

She was carefully covered
And loaded onto a bus (ambulance)
Then taken to the hospital
To see what could be done

They had found her... near death...
Partially clad and a bloodied mess
Still pinned to the ground by her neck
But clinging to life

They found him nearby with a knife through his throat
With her one last last breath
She'd broken hands free
Grabbed the knife and stabbed! !

Stabbed for all her might! !
Summoned anger, hate and will
And finished him
In the moment he had lost himself in her

She would no doubt take time to recover
She would be haunted by the voice...forever
But she was alive...
And that was all that mattered!

Oh, you misled me down that pessimistic path so easily in this one. Nicely finished up, great little action/suspense piece. Maybe you should write for CSI? -chuck

Phew! A gripping narrative told with great skill. I'm glad that her strength and will to survive shone through in the end - sadly this is not always the case...well done Dee. Justine

So nice, so good to read of victory in this scenario, seldom seen in reality. Here is to all the victims/survivors who didn't get their victory. Well told tale, Dee.
