  Stolen Jewel

He held one hand out to her. The other hand held the heavy briefcase.

“Come on, Alexis. You know that you don’t belong here.”

She stood still looking at his hand.

This wasn’t a small town, but it wasn’t big. There were no operas, no ballets. But she was safe here, near her family. If she got on the plane they’d be leaving the country. She might have to learn another language.

Her mother once laughed at her, telling Alexis she barely spoke English and should master it before learning another.

Alexis grabbed his hand and walked onto the plane.

  1. I thought that the stolen jewel was Alexis? If she’s involved in crime, not so great. But good for her if she frees herself of the derision of her mother and believes in herself. Interesting story.


  2. Was the jewel really stolen – or did she take a leap of faith that an assumed love (?) brings?
    was the suitcase heavy because she was packed to go or was she stealing family jewels in it?
    Or all of the above. Or am i just overthinking?
