It was like coming out of a dream... And yet in ???'s mind there was heaviness, a drug-induced daze...
"Smile for me..." The voice was insistent... “Careful, my girl. Careful,” came a casual reply.
She gave token resistance as her hands continued to be stroked, and then slowly coaxed behind her, and only when she heard the crisp snapping sound of a plastic zip-tie clasping her wrists tightly together did she attempt to protest.
