a phone call away

 

She felt no one understood her or appreciated her. She had to do it. There was no other way.

She noticed the old pay phone on the wall and looked askance at it.

Could it change the course of history? If I talk to someone? Possibly.

She then realized that she couldn’t recall any number, all her contacts were on her cell phone, and she had left it at home so that nobody could find her.

    Oh, this is so sad. I hope she survives whatever it is that’s going to change history.

    I like the way you analyse her reasons for leaving so succinctly. I suspect the inability to make that phone call will have her going home again!

    Why am I the only one who is thinking that the first three lines are important? Is she going to hurt herself? Or a bit far more imaginative…

    haha! I was only thinking the other day, that I used to remember everybody’s phone number, now my phone does that for me and I remember email addresses 🙂

  10. It is sad, that she cannot make the call that can change the course of things! Or can she still? I hope she doesn’t go for it.
