Drabble - Strangers in the Night

Cold wind pierced through Trish’s skin as she rushed to the bus stop. Bubbling with anger she had stormed out of Sam’s apartment. The break up was imminent. She was shivering and, sobbing for being so blind.

A gentle tap startled her. Looking up she met a pair of grey eyes.

“You must be cold Love”, he said and wrapped his coat around her shoulders. Trish hesitated but let the warm fabric envelop her.


He smiled before walking away, dissolving into the dark.

His genuine concern touched her. She resolved they won’t just be strangers in the night.

They weren’t.
