FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER
Today’s Bus Ride
After riding on the bus, for what seemed like forever, I looked up and saw a woman sitting in the seat behind the driver.
There was no movement from her until the bus driver turned sharply to the right, and the woman fell sideways.
I jumped up from my seat and rushed over to her, to see if she was alright.
It was at that moment when I saw blood dripping from her sweater.
A closer look revealed a small knife protruding from her chest.
I immediately notified the bus driver and he brought the bus to a stop.
The driver called the police and an ambulance.
I listened to the news and heard about a woman being stabbed on a bus today.
Apparently, her husband had gotten angry with her and stabbed her with his pocket knife before exiting the bus.
After being questioned by the police, he confessed to stabbing her.
She is at the hospital in critical condition.
