Retraced Steps

For Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge

Walking aimlessly,

She wandered about,

Facing raised eyebrows,

From strangers all around.

Her last stop on the platform,

It was a rainy night,

The large puddle of water,

Reflecting her lost plight.

A sudden light and a beep,

Getting her back to reality,

A text message not expected,

That she scrolled through rapidly.

The dream was not yet crushed,

Indeed, all was not lost,

Heart swelling with hope,

She returned with winning thoughts.
