Christian Thriller Excerpt

A Chapter by Craig W. Dressler

This is an excerpt from the Christian thriller entitled Heart of Terror.




     Was there cause for concern?  When U.S. Customs' officials handcuff and haul you into a cubicle that reflects your image, certainly your ire begins to increase.  Being an English teacher I understand gerunds and transitive verbs but U.S. Customs' officials, the CIA or whoever had locked me in this tiny room were beyond my realm of experience.  Perhaps, some paranoid grandma returning from Europe had overheard me speaking about working in Saudi Arabia and done her civic duty by informing on the suspected terrorist planning to wreak havoc on American society by releasing numerous dangling participles on trusting citizens.  I really didn't know; I was stumped.

     Sure, I had taught Arabs of different stripes, mostly Saudis, but I was a teacher.  That is what instructors do in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Sure, I had played volleyball with Arabs late at night out in the desert on the outskirts of Riyadh, but nobody in their right mind would want to do anything in hundred plus temperature during the day.  Sure, I had dinner out after class with Saudi students while listening to constant harangues as to why the U.S. is so bad because it supports Israel.  But what else is there to do except enjoy legendary Arab hospitality in a country where even Miss Piggy is banned.  Don't get me wrong, I would much rather have the current king rather than a Muslim extremist ruling the country.  But, hey, lighten up a little would you?  As I said, though, why I was locked in this little room was beyond my ken.
