Ellie stands on the deserted street corner waiting for the bus. Finally, she sits on her battered brown suitcase and watches the fog roll in around the dim streetlamps. It’s a chilly night; she shivers in her thin shawl as she peers down the street, the buckle of the strap holding her case together stabbing her in the buttocks. Someday I’ll be able to afford a new one goes through her mind, as she moved over.
Wisps of hot air escape through the grates in the street that badly needs a new coat of paving; dark cracks run over it like spider webs. Ellie is glad to be leaving this place; soon it will be a distant memory, the constant chill, the fog, the rain.
For those new to this, the rules are simple:
1) pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published
2) pick six sentences
3) post ‘em on Sunday
