She slid onto a seat at the end of the bar where she could see both doors and everything that went on. It wasn’t that she was paranoid, but experience had taught her to always sit so. As she bent over to pick up one of the newsies from another stool, she saw him behind the cashier. Tall, slender, well groomed. She gulped, wondering if she could manage to make it out the door without being recognized.

Maybe if she slipped behind those women at the register….

  1. Always sit facing the door so you can see all of the entrances and so nobody can sneak up behind you. On the other hand, being in the back with only entrances at the front can get you in a heap load of trouble… Nice take on it, and I like the literal translation of photo to words.

    1. I was taught by my police officer foster dad never to put your back to a door or window. Always to be vigilante of what’s happening around you and to know just the right time to up and walk out (even if you aren’t finished eating). Has saved me from violent encounters on more than one occasion.

    1. Good. I wrote this more as a prompt type thing. Couldn’t really find a full story to shove into so few words this week. I’m sure the pic will inspire more later.
