Leaving the Slow Lane
by JE Lillie
The bus had stopped just outside her bowling alley for years. Jessica had never minded. It seemed almost like free advertising. After all few things drew a crowd in Jefferson like the bus out-of-town.
Today was different though. She stood at the glass door and cursed the bus outside. She cursed the big man in the brown Stetson.
He was going to make his fortune, he said.
He was leaving her behind is what he meant.
He turned one last time to wave good-bye. He blew her a kiss. She caught it and nestled it to her heart. The tears fell and she turned away.
