friday flash 55: story continues

All the way to the airport Adam was torn. "Can I live with myself"' he wondered? "This is so wrong. But, I can't go back. They certainly won't harm her. Adam rushed to the counter to check in his luggage. Suddenly somethng made him turn his head.
It was Eve. Eve is going to Hawaii.

Previous the 1st story is -- (A quick synopsis)
a man running down the street , sweat covering his brow, he ran into a building, feeling his heart beating , he went to a corridor where there were less people and calmed down. he felt the envelope in his pocket and he could feel that the money was still there

2nd installme
the phone rang and she felt fearful.
he apologized for calling so late.
she waited to hear the news. He quietly said "I have the money".
Choking up, she said, "Thank God".
"it's ok, I am coming home."he said
"no matter what, I am here for you", she replied.
And he said, "I know".

3rd post
He arrived home later than he expected.
The house is dark.
Where could she be? she knew I was coming.
She said she'd be there no matter what.
The door was open a crack. she'd never leave the door open.
Something is wrong.
He listened for sounds but only heard the deafening sound of silence.

4th post
As Adam entered, he flicked the familiar light switch to on.
He dropped his keys on the table and cautiously entered further in to the house.
His gut told him what happened as did the note hanging on the bedroom door.
The note read, "return the money if you ever want to see her again."

5th post
Adam knew what he should do. The problem is he also knew what he really wanted to do.
Life is so hard. 'Why can I Never catch a break', Adam wondered? I have 800,000 dollars in my pocket. I could go anywhere. I could do anything.
Adam picked up the phone and dialed the number.

Adam listened to the ringing...thinking maybe he should change his mind.
The voice on the other line answered "United Airlines, can I help you?"
Still questioning his choice, he nearly hung up the phone.
"Can you tell me when the next flight to Stockholm is? I need a one way ticket for Adam Smith."
