Five Minute Friday: Afraid
The day was that kind of spring day where the sun is hot but the wind still blows. Any sort of exertion means you’ll get sweaty, but if you stop you’ll get cold. And here I was walking down the road with a blister growing exponentially with each step. I had a long way to go and I was afraid I wouldn’t make it.
I’d already walked some ancient roads, trails and even on top of a wall, so the walking wasn’t the bad part. It was the blasted shoe I was wearing.
So cool in the shop window.
So not cool on my foot.
My fear of not making it eclipsed my fear of doing what I was about to do. So I stuck out my thumb. What would my mom say? If my dad knew, he’d kill me. How bad can it be? If I don’t like who stops I’ll just say no thanks and/or RUN!
The huge van that came around the corner slowed to a stop. I jumped in.
C’mon, how dangerous could the mobile librarian be?
