Micro Monday: "Button"
She hurried along the platform, heels clattering and shoulder bag bouncing off her hip. Ahead the conductor leaned out, urgently waving her forward, his gesture saying she had only a few more seconds to climb aboard. She felt relieved that the bag was her only luggage; anything more would have slowed her down, might have kept her here.
She reached the stairs and stepped up, grasping for the conductor’s hand and knocking loose a button from her cardigan. The button plinked once on the platform and rolled into oblivion next to the tracks. It was all she would leave behind.
I like this one!
