Passion in Transit
An advertisement on the city bus catches Cassandra’s attention during her commute and gets her ruminating over her lackluster life. As she absently gazes out the window contemplating a failed relationship from her past, a stranger takes the empty seat beside her. The antics of her seat companion jar Cassandra back to the present and force her to make some surprising decisions.
The Short story,“Passion in Transit”, is published on-line in Brian Henry’s Quick Brown Fox.
