Friday Fictioneers: Throwback

Suzanne pulled into the convenience store to use the rest room. She had been on the road for hours when she spotted this throwback to a simpler time.

“Throwback to a simpler time. That is what I need” she thought looking back at her car crammed with her possessions.

She thought of her husband who would be coming home from work soon; angry that she hadn’t answered his calls or texts all day, furious not finding his dinner on the table, and then what, she wondered? How would he react when he saw all her things gone? She shuddered and hurried back to her car.

    p.s. don’t you hate those bathroom breaks when you’re on the road? UGH!!!


  2. Keep running Suzanne! And don’t look back. Glad she was smart enough to leave town and start over again someplace new. Poor thing is still thinking about the “what ifs” as she is on the run. Nicely done.
