Cassie stepped off the curb. “Wait! Wait!” A male voice called.
She bristled. Please, no, not when I’ve made it this far.
A young man approached another young woman next to her. “I’m sorry,” he said, and embraced her. Ah, true love. Or not.
Close call, she thought.
Lord knows, it took enough nerve to get her this far. She couldn’t stay any longer. Something in her would die if she did.
The bus, a $50 fare, would get her on her way fast. Back home.
“Merry Christmas to me,” she whispered, boarding the Greyhound bus, backpack in hand.
Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above. It is awesome, in this blogging community, to see the many different responses that are generated from one prompt or photo. I encourage you to create your own and click the InLinkz button to add it to the Friday Fictioneers responses! While you’re at it, go to Rochelle’s link above and check out some of the other Friday Fictioneers’ responses!
