First Campaigner Challenge

The door swung shut and she took a breath of sweet wonderful freedom. She wouldn’t have to look over her shoulder when she walked out the door. Never again. Shifting the back pack onto her shoulders she hurried down to the bus stop.
“Hey MJ, hold on a minute!”
She glanced down the street, where the hell was the bus. She waved to her friend Marie. “Hey there, what’s kicking?”
“Not much, you’re really going through with it huh?”
“I said I would, now’s the time to do it while he’s away.”
“You’re still not going to tell me where you’re going, are you?”
She shook her head. “We talked about that Marie. If you don’t know where I am you can’t tell anyone.”
“OK” Anna Marie sniffed. “Just please be careful.”
The bus had turned the corner, she reached and gave her friend a hug.
“I will, you do the same ok?”
The bus pulled up and she got on, paid her fare and turned to wave good by to the one person she would miss from her old life as the door swung shut.

  5. Nice conversation piece! Makes me wonder what she meant by “old life.”

    Awesome job, Elaine! 🙂
