Escape

The picture was all over the news – plane with about 300+ people aboard crashed in the middle of nowhere, a few minutes before landing.
Anu looked at the images, a dazed look in her eyes.
Their last conversation kept flashing before her eyes – they had argued about the way to handle the current mess.
“I do not want to run, Anu. We can not run away forever, can we?”, he had almost begged her to stay with him.
And she had, she had been sitting outside the airport as the plane left and later crashed.
She was glad she did not meet this fate, this kind of escape from life.

  1. talk about seeing into other worlds!
    (despite being Six and fiction, the incidence of avoiding disaster while another does not is not un-heard of. imagine how that must feel.)
    Thought-provoking Six.

  2. I was hoping Anu had not gotten on the plane! Can’t begin to imagine what that must feel like – making a choice that was literally the difference between life and death.
    Nicely done! I’m glad you joined in the SSS again this week ๐Ÿ™‚
