Trapped with Tom

Kathleen's first day at Hamilton Hodell was always going to be an interesting one, but even she could never have imagined it would turn out the way it did. A chance meeting with a familiar face - and a malfunctioning lift - will change her life forever.


6. Embraceable You

I reach over, deciding that it's my turn to hug him. The temperature continues to fall, and I can see the clouds of vapour that we breathe.

"You're welcome." I reply. A shiver runs through his body.

"You're cold..." I look into his eyes.

"Don't worry about me." He says, as I take off his jacket and try to give it back to him "You need it more than I do."

"I don't." I insist "But, if you're so concerned, why don't we share it?"

"If you're alright with that." He shrugs. I sit down as close to him as I can, and drape the jacket over both of us. He hugs me closer.

"Why hasn't anyone noticed the lift is broken yet?" I ask "Does this happen a lot?"

"Nobody's ever been trapped in it before" Tom answers "I guess they've just slapped some tape on it and left it."

"But...won't they notice you've gone?"

"It's my day off. I was going to surprise my agent and Luke with lunch later, but I came in early to sort out some paperwork first."

"Oh." I say "If you weren't such a nice person you wouldn't be stuck here." He elbows me gently.

"But if I wasn't stuck here I would never have met you." He smiles "And that would've been an awful loss."

"I'm sure we would've met somehow." I smile back. I feel like the luckiest girl alive, even stuck in the elevator - I'm trapped with Tom.
