Friday Fictioneers – Farewell!

Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story with a beginning, middle and end in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Farewell!

We were late. The driver was just about to close the rear door of the bus as we rounded the corner. He shouted, “Quickly! My bus leaves on time.” The other passengers grinned. The bus was never punctual.

Mike took my backpack.

“Here, I’ll pass it up to you.”

I climbed into the bus, which smelt pungent. A hairy head with a wispy white beard leaned towards me. Heavens! A goat!

I grabbed my pack.

Mike gestured to the driver to shut the door.

“Enjoy the rest of the holiday,” he grinned.

What? He’s supposed to be coming too!
