The end of the line – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction.  Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group.  It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

The end of the line

The room was spotlessly clean.  And completely empty.  Arin stood in the doorway and looked around.  It was uncomfortably silent. 

 Her grandmother had told her about places like this where people would wait for trains. She wondered what they had done while they waited, sitting on these wooden benches.  She tried to imagine what the journeys would have been like.  She reached out and touched the back of a bench then, tentatively, sat down on the seat. 

 A tear slid unexpectedly down her cheek.  She turned to look at her companion.  There were no trains now. They were going nowhere.
