Author’s Note: It’s a redux of the post from April 10, 2015. Why? Because I can, and I’m having to work on stuff outside of posts today. Enjoy!
Train of Thought
by Miles H. Rost
Lucas Milford hated hearing that word, in the modern context. His commute and his job, though, were the biggest forms of forced obedience for him.
He looked around the subway car, seeing all the gray and black suits and dresses. He wondered for just a moment whether he would be able to survive it all.
“Pulling into 92nd Street. Next stop: 112th Street – Broadway Station” the speaker droned out.
Lucas sighed as the train pulled one stop closer to his home. He started to close his eyes.
A flash of yellow streaked by him.
His eyes shot open, and he looked around. He spied the lemon yellow dress of a beautiful woman, whose green eyes bore into his, and red hair screamed out “different!” to him.
“Such…color…” he said, as the woman started moving closer to him.
Promising. . . perhaps he WILL survive 🙂
Color usually does that to a person.
A flash from the past, perhaps, but still a good story. Enjoyed it.
The music really does make the point come across, for sure.
Look for small movement, or in this case a splash of color. It can be a life raft when one is in grim circumstances.
I know that for sure. 😀
