FATE (150 words)

Grayson’s silver sedan weaved in and out of traffic.

“Dammit, I’m such an idiot.”

Grayson honked his horn before swerving around a truck. His eyes flickered to the dash. 12:55pm. The ship was leaving and Lillian didn’t know how he felt. He redialed her number, each ring until it went to voicemail like a kick to his gut. After checking in with security, he zoomed into the parking lot and barely threw his car into park before sprinting to the dock.

Too late. The ship drifted in the harbor, each second pulling it further away. His breath ragged and his heart heavy, Grayson’s shoulders slumped.

“I’m glad I’m not the only one.”

Behind him, sitting on her luggage was a woman, grinning. Grayson couldn’t stop staring. He scolded himself for so quickly forgetting about Lillian.

“Beth.” The woman extended her hand. “Sometimes things happen for a reason.”

“I might just be willing to believe it.”

  1. I love this Vanessa! Lillian should have answered her phone. 🙂 Seems it is fate that Beth and Grayson have found each other. Wonderful story!
