“I’m a nice guy though, so I’ll make you a deal. If you can find a cheap air flight I’ll let you leave free and clear. I’ll even let me assistant help you.”He calls out and a small, hunched over man walks up. He’s instructed to find me a flight home. The older man reminds me that I can go home if I can find an affordable flight. The other guy frowns, seemingly amazed. After a few minutes the assistant informs us there are no flights. I panic and beg to look myself but the assistant insists there is nothing and my captor believes him. I need to leave.
“You can leave whenever you want, you know,” my captor chuckles, “just let me take you pretty little finger and off you go. But you will stay here until you decide.”
I consider my options. I can let him hack off my finger and leave or stay here indefinitely and keep all my fingers. I lean towards giving in but I know I could never hold still long enough to let him. I told him I’m not ready and choose to stay.
