Her date arrived late, his suit caked in dirt. She left with barely a hello. Later on the news was her date. He’d saved a small boy’s life.
hate when that happens. nice story.
Great story composition, from set up through crisis to denouement. However, I stumbled a little on the third sentence and wondered if it flowed better as ‘Later her date was on the news’.
Wonderful story on how not to judge people by initial appearances.
Instant gratification is not real life. A premature judgment is a finger pointing forward and three pointing back.
