… She Wrote

You probably don’t know who I’m talking about, but I’m sitting on the train across from a woman that’s a dead ringer for Angela Lansbury.

I must have the stupidest grin on my face because she keeps giving me major stink eye, peering at me from over an ancient looking, leather bound journal.

There’s a twinkle in her eye, really it’s more like a spark; a sharp, sudden ignition which explodes across her retina and she’s off; writing with fury.

Almost instantly, there is a tightness in my chest that begins radiating down my left arm; it grows heavy and stiff, as if rigor mortis has set in.

My breath comes in jagged gasps, like I’ve been thrown into racing white water.

With the arm still in my control I claw at her for help. A bunch of her floral dress catches in my near death grip.

She looks down at my helpless pawing then continues, rapidly scratching at her journal.

Why won’t she help?

I see no pity or concern in those eyes, just sheer fascination.

I know, and I’m certain she does too, that I’m seconds from death. What could she possibly be writing in this moment?

  1. Hahaha, how can anyone not know who Angela Lansbury is!? I vividly saw the opening to that show play out in my head while reading this.

    1. I mentioned to 3 people that day and no one knew who I was talking about. So I added that opening. Happens a lot to me here in Finland.

      1. They really are. They both have always looked old too. Like Dame Maggie Smith. I can’t possibly picture her not looking old. She looked older in Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habbit than she looked in Harry Potter.
