Hearts on the Run (Romantic Thriller)
Death was a fairly attractive woman in 12-B, an aisle seat on the flight from New York to London in the late spring of 1998. She had brown hair, brown eyes, high cheekbones, and wore a pair of black framed glasses that she used when reading a tattered romance novel. She smiled warmly at the flight attendants when they spoke to her and politely helped an older gentleman lift a heavy bag into the overhead compartment when he was too frail to do it himself. Of all the people on the plane, only Richard recognized her for whom she really was, and that was because he had seen her before.
He was walking down the aisle, heading toward the restroom, when he spotted her. The seat next to her was unoccupied, so he sat down beside her. She looked up at him as he stepped over her, smiling. He wanted to know what she was doing on this plane.
For a long moment, he said nothing, he did not even look at her, and she seemed uninterested in him as well. The passengers had grown quiet, the dull roar of the airplane engine drone lulling them into a stupor. Somewhere behind him, a small child was whimpering.
“I know who you are,” He finally said.
