Jumping on a bus

The man rounded the corner at a quick trot, his tie flapping over his shoulder.

It was obvious that the bus was going to reach the stop well before the man.

Lauren veered from her path to the shelter and stretched out her arm, thinking she’d hold it up for him.

The bus stopped.

A few seconds later the man dashed past.

Embarrassed, Lauren stepped aboard.

This is the story of my life, she thought to herself: jumping on a bus I don’t need and going in the wrong direction for a man who wasn’t interested in the first place.

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Oh, that's a great 'snapshot' of a moment, Rob. Lots of solid visual imagery there, and, as always, you make every word count. Well done
