The following piece was written for Friday Fictioners by Rochelle Wisoff .
This piece represents my first entry into the Friday Fictioners photo prompt challenge with the aim to write a full story: beginning, middle, end.

I rattled the first shutter. It was locked.
“Help,” I screamed.
My footfalls echoed frantically from one shutter to the next. I tried the second – the third, but they too—remained firmly shut.
As I ran, I could hear the sounds of circuits tripping behind me. One by one – the lights tripped off.
They drove me forward, and before long, I reached the end of the corridor.

I clung to the sound in my chest and the gasping of my breath.
“Help me,” I pleaded.
Explore your Fiction.
Love your Reality.
