Bus Stop

It was when I was waiting for the afternoon bus that I first saw her. She had just turned the corner as the bus pulled to the stop, and I was frozen. A gentle breeze blew her long, light brown hair off her shoulders and down her back.

She was a dream come true, the woman on the street; I found myself drawn to her. Her beauty was accented by her confident stride. She approached the idling bus, quickly; not rushing. As she stepped to the door she drew her hand from her pocket and began with shooting the driver.

:shock: Oh wow. Talk about a bait-and-switch ending! Loved this Drabble, Dr. B: a genre mashup if ever I saw one.

My feminist side also likes the subversiveness of having a narrator caught up in defining a woman in terms of her beauty and how well she fulfills his personal ideals, and then the twist showing that the woman's not there to fulfill his dreams at all. :twisted: Bravo.
