Sarah glared at him on the platform. “Why Vince? Why stay?”
“Because we’re good for each other. You’ve admitted as much.” He whined.
Sarah pointed at the status board that read one minute until the next train arrived. “You have that long to convince me to stay with you. If I get on that train this is our last Sunday, our last day period!” She crossed her arms and waited.
On his heels, Vince thought fast. “We like the same things. We’re always laughing together.”
“All true, but not what need to hear.”
“The sex is great?”
“Again, true. But I need more.”
“This train is always on time,” she warned.
Vince eyed the status board, wide eyed. “I’d be lost, without you. I…love you.”
Sarah smiled. “At last, you’re on time,” and she kissed him deeply.
Some day, she planned to tell him the train didn’t run on Sundays.
Each week, Alastair Forbes presents an original photo and encourages creative minds to write up to 150 words based upon the photo. Anyone can join in, so why not? There’s plenty of great writers out there already writing for this weekly challenge, so join us in writing and reading some great flash fiction.
