FFfAW-Week of 08-25-2015 – The Bridge

My first time trying the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers Challenge!

It had been their meeting place for months.  Everyday under the bridge at 4 o’clock.  He always brought a blanket.  She always brought her notebook, poetry scribbled inside.  It was all they had.  Her marriage had been arranged long ago, to a boy she didn’t know.  If they were caught, her family would disown her.

He’d decided to end it.  She’d never defy her family.  He had a date with another girl that night, someone from work.  A fun, giggly little thing.  No rules, no drama.

But, when he arrived at the bridge, she was already there.  “I told them.”  She dragged a suitcase behind her.

She jumped into his arms and he held her, saying nothing.
