"Jo! Jo can you hear me?" i heard a distant voice calling my name. I looked around in the think white cloud in vain.
"David!" I yelled as I wiped the tears from my face. "Dave where are you?"
"Keep talking Jo. I'll find you, don't worry." He called in a soothing manner.
"I'm scared. Where am I? Where are you?" I was starting to panic.
"Just keep talking Josie, I'll find you."
I pulled my coat closer around me and shivered. I don't even know where I am. I had been walking home from the little coffee shop I love when the fog came in thick, white and sudden. I had turned back to run for shelter when I lost my way. It was getting dark quickly.
"David? How did you know where I am? I don't even know where I am."
There was a pause before he said,"I don't know how I knew." He sounded closer.
"Dave!" I shouted. I looked around and noticed the fog was starting to lift. There was a figure right in front of me.
The shape turned.
I ran up to him and threw my arms around his chest. I started sobbing with relief.
David hugged me tight and rubbed my back while he spoke softly,"shhh. I've got you. It's okay. You're not lost anymore."
He wiped my face dry with the sleeve of his coat.
"Let's go home." He held out his arm and I linked mine in his and smiled at him. The fog was thin now and light from the lamp posts streamed around us while we walked in the direction of my home.
