55 Pieces

I posted this on Tuesday night in one of my groups. I'm not going to link as I don't want you to read any of the other garbage I've posted there! It's a short story group founded by the owner of one of my blog subs (who doesn't blog with anywhere near the frequency I'd wish for!) and is inspired by a book of such stories in which all entries are precisely 55 words.

Fresh off a break-up and among countless strangers, she’s alone in an airport, waiting to go home. The man who dropped her off is driving away; he’ll be home in two hours. Counting the hours, after time zones and connections, until she gets home, she closes her eyes, trying to remember what home feels like.
