Reader's Diary #2252- Anna Lu: Motorway Service Stop

 The danger and specifics aren't exactly laid out in Anna Lu's flash fiction story "Motorway Service Stop" and that's no doubt intentional as it's from the perspective of a child, who may or may not know exactly what is happening beyond something wrong and scary. 

However, it's also told in a 2nd person voice and adult readers would know exactly what is happening. I think that tension between ourselves and the character we're meant to assume adds brilliantly to the story.
