Running High - Chapter 13

Finally they arrived at Istanbul after travelling around 14,946 kms.

Fortunately Steele was there to pick them up and both he and Ric greeted one another warmly.

After, Ric stepped back and said, ‘Steele, let me introduce..Sara.’

He said it in such a fashion, she was embarrassed.

Steele stepped towards her and said,  ‘Ah ha, I finally get to meet the fitness guru.’

Laughing he announced, ‘Haven’t we got some work for you!’

Sara, giggled and said, ‘Sure give me a shower and after that I am all yours.’

Jostling amongst the crowds, Steele guided them both out of the airport and towards a waiting vehicle.

‘Please,’ he said, ‘Give me your luggage.’

As he did, the driver got out, took the luggage off Steele, and loaded it into the boot of the car. With an arm extended Steele directed both Ric and Sara into the car and it sped off.

Sara was silent as the pair chatted excitedly as the driver weaved through traffic, spanning many lanes.

Sara was grateful to have an escort as she looked out of the car’s window observing the startling cultural contrast compared to her homeland.

  1. Hi, dear Allie-Millie! This is the first time I ever read a story set in Turkey and I'm right with you as the excitement builds and the principal characters move closer to the endurance run. I can't help wondering what was behind the pregnant pause as Ric introduced Sara to Steele. It was enough to embarrass her but perhaps at the same time she was flattered by it. I can't wait for the next installment, dear friend Allie-Millie.

    I hope to see you over at my place this Saturday morning (U.S.A. Eastern time) for a very special birthday tribute. Thank you, dear friend!

  2. Ok thanx Shady, I'll will go take a look then. So the change in names not too confusing! See you

  3. Your story is moving along nicely - I'm keeping up now!! Lovely work.

    Istanbul just screams "exotic." That is a great location for adventure and romance.

  4. Hey Cherdo,

    Thanx! Since you were keen on getting it in one hit I have sent it as a word doc via your blog news feed @ 35 chapters. If anyone else keen on getting it this way, email - cheers Allie-Millie
