Exciting Pleasure

She opened her eyes, waking up with a throbbing headache and severe body pain.
Finding herself on a bed in a dingy room, she first slipped into her clothes that were scattered on the floor.

‘Exciting Pleasure Hotel, Pattaya, Thailand’ – the cheap menu-card informed...
She wondered how did she get there hundreds of kilometres from her home?
All she remembered was the injection at her village for a minor cut...

She found several needle-pricks on her arms.
She understood that there was no time to lose.

The window showed escape route.
The motor-boats near Hotel Berrisford beckoned for 'exciting pleasure'.

According to a report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), 71 per cent of all human trafficking victims are women and girls and one third are children. The report found that women and girls are usually trafficked for sexual exploitation.

  1. Dear Anita

    Bummer of a way to wake up. Nicely done.



  2. I hope she manages to get away.

  3. Eek! I hope she managed to escape to safety! Nicely done, Anita.

  4. I hope she succeeds in escaping. People trafficking is a despicable crime.

  5. I hope your character escapes. I also hope a lot of the real women and girls escape their lot, too. In this day and age, trafficking ought to be another thing that doesn't happen.

  6. Window and boat, she'd better be quick before they realise she's awake. Gripping in so very few words!

  7. Hope she escapes ~ great post for E

    Happy Week to you,

  10. My stomach was in a knot by the second sentence. In my job, I've worked with a few survivors of sex trafficking. Horrendous.

  11. I do feel strongly! I live in a country where such trafficking has now escalated and into the very very very young. Its horrifying and a matter of prayer!

  12. Topical take for these times.


Your words mean a lot to me.
