Joy's Holiday

Author(s): Destiny Wallace

Instead of playing nice with her family, Joy lost her temper and landed herself in a seedy motel on Christmas Eve.  Just when she's sure things couldn't get any worse, she's relocated to a different room, by the police. 

Will Joy's holiday be a complete disaster or will the handsome stranger in the room make things better?

She tossed her cell on the nightstand and turned up the eleven o’clock news. A thin, balding black man was beginning the weather report when someone rapped sharply on her door. Joy jumped and dropped the remote.

“Police! Open up!”

The seizing of her heart made her gasp aloud. They must have the wrong room, she thought taking a few deep breaths to calm herself.

The knock came again, this time louder and her heart picked up the pace. She crept to the window, and leaned over the heating unit to pull back the stiff curtain. The pinched face of a thin, middle-aged cop in uniform was on the other side. He motioned for her to open the door and she quickly obeyed.

“Uh…can I help you?” she said to him and his overweight partner.

His watery brown eyes moved up and down her frame. She crossed her arms over her breasts and rubbed the chill bumps on her upper arms.

The thin man glanced at the clip board he held in his gloved hand and back at her. “Are you the only one in this room, Ms. Grady?”

Joy nodded, her eyes widening at his use of her name.

“Ma’am,” the heavier officer, Hannigan his nametag read, said stepping forward. “We have a situation in the motel and we need to move all civilians to a safe location on the other side of the first floor.”

Joy’s eyes got even wider. “What’s going on?”

The thin man, his badge read Polk, scratched something on his clipboard as he spoke. “Time is of the essence, please get a coat and shoes and follow us.”
