“Destinations” is my submission for the 49th FFfAW challenge (Check it out here). It is composed of a whopping 172 words. Enjoy!
As the sun peeked over the watery horizon, he couldn’t help but recall the old Beatles tune. He smiled at the thought, a great song for a great new day. He stretched out his arms and legs, feeling the cool, golden sand against his bare skin. He yawned away the last remnants of drowsiness, grabbed his shoes and rucksack, and headed up onto the boardwalk. He knew he had a few minutes before the first bus showed up, so he decided to pop into a little restaurant on the oceanfront. He sat at the counter and ordered a coffee from the woman tending it.
“Where you headed handsome?” she said plopping down his coffee.
He chuckled, “That’s a good question, but I’m afraid I don’t have a good answer.”
She raised an eyebrow, “So you don’t got a destination or anything?”
“Everyone has a destination, I just haven’t found mine yet, and that’s what I aiming to do.”
The man left a hundred-dollar bill and boarded a bus without checking it’s next stop.
