The Bus to Nowhere

Friday October 19, 2012 Photo prompt by Ron Pruitt

I wanted to go somewhere – anywhere. I’d been in that stuffy apartment for one solid month waiting on him. He wasn’t coming back. I had to accept that. It was time to move on. I waited at the bus stop for an hour with all the others and finally boarded the bus. I settled in my seat and let out a breath of relief as the bus began to roll. As it passed my apartment, my gaze fixed on a familiar figure limping up the steps. My heart lurched and I shouted. “Stop the bus!”
