via Daily Prompt: Passenger
This is the first time that she’s going to the city.
She just turned 18 and she dreams of a life that different from what she had grown up with.
She asked the blessing of her parents. Her mother agreed to her plans but her father was very reluctant to let her go.
She put her things on a carton with the address of her friend written on the side of the box and at the same time, she also kept the address in her bag and in her pocket.
“Finally, I will now see the city.” she said to herself.
She took the train that will bring her to the city. Though this travel will took her 15 hours, she can not sleep. Every now and then, she would asked her co-passenger “Is it near?” or “Have we arrive?” and the other passenger would say “No, it is still far. Take a sleep first.”
And when finally she fell aslept, the other passenger woke her up as they have reached their destination.
She looked for her friend, but she was nowhere in sight.
“Where is she?” “I told her that I’ll be arriving today?”
Not finding her friend, she sat on her carton in the middle of the terminal so that she could easily be find by her friend. (There was no cellphone yet during this time).
After waiting for 3 hours, she decided to ride in a taxi. She gave the address that was on her pocket and luckily, the driver himself, knew her friend.
How thankful her friend when they saw each other her friend told her that she did not receive the letter from her.
