PROMPT: All in a Minute

0

GROUP: Flash Fiction

The train sped down the track with the gracefulness of an injured doe. Trees rushed past the imaginations of eager children, and gossip traveled through the car like yeast through unbaked dough. For the couple sitting in the back by a window, the journey was almost over. The man commented on the divine weather, and his wife sat silently beside him. The train rumbled over a bump in the track, and the old man reached out to stop his wife from tumbling to the floor. His devotion would be sure to carry her ashes safely home.
