From September 24th
I have to write a story using three scenes a train station, a sheriff’s office, and a general store.
It all started at the train station, we are supposed to meet at 5pm to catch our 6:15 train out of town to see his parents my future in-laws.
But his no where to be found and his not answering his phone it’s really starting to piss me off. It’s now five-thirty and he still hasn’t came around.
Ugh, maybe something happen for it’s so unlike him to be late. I better head over to police station and see if they have any knowledge about my missing man.
Lucky for me the sheriff’s office isn’t that far away and they are super busy and even once I get to speak to someone it’s no use for he hasn’t been gone long enough for anyone but me to care.
Looking down at my watch as I open the door to the crisp night air and realize it’s now 5:45pm. I decide if only one of make them trip than at least I’ll still have a good time.
As I was almost back at the train station and it was not 5:50pm and I just was walking passed the general shop and there you were with snacks in your hand and standing behind two men and a very tall blonde head women.
I rushed inside and hit your arm and demanded to know where you have been and why are you buying snacks when were so close to missing the train and the next one is a hour away.
You ensure me that we will make it and that the line is moving and all will be well as we will be getting on the train tonight. Three minutes later you are at the register and paying for your treats and two bottles of water and I as you grab your receipt from the cashier we race out the door and enter the train station at 6pm.
We run to where our train is boarding and lucky for us it’s a crowded train or the doors could have been closed by now, as the attended looks at our tickets and we walk down the lit hall way that leads to the platform where all the trains are we follow the few people in front of us as we board the train and 6:10pm with five minutes to spare.
And all I could think of now is how I want to hit you so much for this night was suppose to go so smoothly and some how you turned it so upside down and you didn’t even really apologies about being late. And just as I’m getting comfortable you hand me a bottle of water and my favorite chocolate that is hard to find to me and just like that everything is forgiven.
