Eavesdropping: on the bus

Sometimes, the most interesting ideas are sparked from overheard snippets of conversations.

Two people are sat on the bus (you are behind them) and one says to the other, “I’ll never forgive you as long as I live”. Write 150 words to tell us what happened – check into the LWC site and add it as a comment to this post.

    ‘I’ll never forgive you as long as I live!’
    But it was hardly my fault. I was not responsible. It just happened. It happened before I even saw it coming. It was not my fault and no matter how hard I could have tried to justify my part I knew she would not believe me. I had just heard about Carl. I was walking, I was numb, I know I wasn’t looking, but it wasn’t my fault. The car just came out of nowhere and her dog just ran under its wheels. But my sister would not believe that. I knew it. So I was going to live without Carl and live without her forgiveness for the rest of my life. It didn’t matter, nothing mattered really. I saw her tears and it didn’t matter. I felt my own tears and it didn’t matter.
