55 Word Challenge: Departure

Seven years ago, I wrote a story for a "55 Word Challenge" at WritingDotCom. Today I found a new email from someone giving compliment to the flash piece. I revisited the story and found myself more confused than flattered--definitely not something I would write today.  

Anyway, I tweaked it a bit. You decide.


The late bus arrived at the station. I dashed toward the gates where a myriad of unfamiliar faces filtered through, but there was no sign of her.

Where was she? Did she board another bus?

A stranger walks up to me and hands me a note.

I'm sorry. I found someone else.
