Westminster Bridge

Hi Etienne, I’ve read your stories. Very interesting. On my way to work, let’s talk about them on Sat.

But if Lara says interesting he’ll think she actually finds them… interesting.

And she doesn’t.

The idea of making up stories about people in London and threading them together seems a bit pointless.

The bus is already half way across Westminster Bridge. She’s got about two more minutes until her stop. She’s determined to send the message before then.

Hi Etienne, I’ve read your stories. Let’s talk about them on Sat.

No way, it sounds too negative. She deletes.

Someone rings the bell.

The bus slows, the time to compose diminishes.

Hi Etienne. Just read your stories. Love them!

Fuck it.

She sends.
