A Bus, A Writer, And A Story

A chapter in the book Dribbles And Drabbles

Forgotten Glory

by Brett Matthew West

World famous novelist Mary McGregor wrote her best story ever in the backseat of a Greyhound bus. The notions of her bestseller occupied her mind. A meandering narration, Mary wrote the saga on scrap paper full of words. The rollicking affair was a tale of high adventure.

Suddenly, the bus brakes squealed loud and it came to an unexpected stop. Surprised, Mary forgot her story on the seat and raced for the exit door.

Alas, there went her contest winner.
