Submitted for the #55wordchallenge Week 17

For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and our host has been blown away by some of the entries. The rules for participating and past contests can be found at the link above.  The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon the following Tuesday. Winners will be posted Wednesday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts. Please enjoy She’s Hiding.

 

The City

The City

 

Dusk cloaked the city when Maria looked out the bus window and decided to make this city her new home.  With all her belongings in tow, she signaled the driver and disembarked.  Cutting all ties with home, it mattered very little where she settled.  For now, it only mattered that she not be found.

    True story as many people adopt such lives & are not ‘found’ for life. Nicely described. 🙂
