MicroFiction Monday


 
Happy Birthday to Microfiction!!! Thanks for the fun, Susan!!
Susan at Stony River Farm hosts Microfiction Monday. She posts a picture and you compose a story in 140 characters. You can click on the icon to get further instructions. To help you along she has posted a wonderful link that counts your characters for you! How great is that! You can get the counter at Design 215.

This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!
 She watched the train pulling into the station, picked up her bags.
One last look around. No one. Would he miss her, even know she was gone?

Who needs the bum. She is off to find another.
Sad but true story. Loved your take, tugged at my heart!

A poignant one this time. Excellent.

Jim said...

Poor lady! I wish she had a car. :)
She will have a hard time not taking any more clothes or personal items than she did.

One that pulls at the Heart Strings. I hope she finds her Love in the New Town down the line.

Susan at Stony River said...

ROFL at Peggy's comment! Though I shouldn't laugh, when that's what I did last May...

So was it her husband, or the parish priest she's leaving?
;-)

Diane said...

Sad, but I hope good things are awaiting her. :O)

Kay L. Davies said...

Well done.
I should probably be trying something like this to cure my writer's block, instead of posting photos.

Kay L. Davies said...

Okay, I tried it. Yours is much better than mine, Sylvia. Mine is blah, yours contains more drama, suspense, emotion, etc.

EG Wow said...

Oh, dear. She sounds like such a lonely person. I hope she finds happiness!

Kay said...

This was very poignant and oh so excellent, Sylvia. I'm always amazed at the different ways people take the same photo. This is so much fun!

SquirrelQueen said...

I'm with Peggy, there are more out there who will appreciate her. Who needs the bum?

Pat said...

Maybe he'll notice that his clothes aren't being washed and the dust is building up on the pianto. It's a shame that a spouse is only missed when (s)he's gone.

Excellent!

Strummed Words said...

Nice bit of suspense in the MM! Here's mine.

Michael G-G said...

Nice one, Sylvia. I wonder why a number of us choose the "leaving the spouse option," when we could have gone for the she's off to visit her sis/play the slots at Atlantic City? Perhaps it's because everything seems so empty in the picture?

Have a great week!

Ruthi said...

nice! Leaving is always a sad occasion... especially if you're not sure if you will be missed.

Thom said...

Oh I so hope so....Poor thing....Good one my friend. Have a great week ahead :)

G-Man said...

I Loved yours Sylvia...
Pensive and sad....G

SandyCarlson said...

May she be off for more adventure! No Anna K. moments here!

Prayer Girl said...

That's the loneliest and saddest thought that he might not even know she is gone. Well written MFM.

Hi Sylvia,
You and I were thinking along the same, sad lines for this week's picture! Yours running from and mine running to? :) Loved it!

Linda Reeder said...

Well done. Now that I've read yours, no other ideas flow. So I'll let yours stand alone, like the lady waiting for her train. I hope she's going to see her grandkids.

moondustwriter said...

Great one - I can see her head turning for the last time.

One ward...

Have a great week

moondustwriter said...

yeah that was supposed to be Onward...

gospelwriter said...

Would he even know she's gone? That's sad, but yeah, who needs him anyway? Good for her, leaving. Nice MM!

Deborah said...

Aaah, so sad in just 140, well done!

Ellie said...

So sad. Your MM has really made me stop and think. Loved it.

Have a great week x

Rinkly Rimes said...

The fact that her departure might be un-noticed is so sad.

Greyscale Territory said...

I think it's sad that she questions whether he will miss her or even notice. Does she want him to hurt as she clearly is? A very sensitive micro!

Ash said...

Cool!

JM said...

Very cool meme!

Akelamalu said...

He'll probably realise she's gone when his dinner isn't on the table on time. :(

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Sheesh! If she has to wonder, then he's obviously a putz! Good for her for deciding to start over. :)

septembermom said...

I hope he misses her :)

Quilly said...

He will miss her when dinner doesn't arrive on the table in a timely manner.

Lenore said...

ah, I want to give her a cwtch! poor thing.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
