I was challenged to write a short story under 150 words, it was quite difficult actually!
He was on a train, impatiently counting the minutes until he reached his destination. Wondering what would happen when he got there, what would he say? Would she be there waiting? How will she look? Has she changed after over a year? Will they just stand in silence?
These thoughts circled around in his mind, making the journey almost unbearable. Causing doubts to pop into his head and trying to think of ways out of it. This was his usual reaction to uncertainty, when he dares to break the mold and take risks. Escape to safety and the comfort of the mundane, but he wasn’t happy there anymore and new he needed to be brave.
Eventually the train stopped, he departed and he saw her waiting for him. Nothing else mattered from then onwards.
