Call: Super Short Story (205)

Super Short Story (205): Call

Walking along the dark alley,
she was afraid that there might be a stalker.

Pretending there was really one,
she pretended to make a phone call,
to a pretend friend, by speaking loudly,
while she walked briskly but steadily along,
saying where she is, on how she might be followed,
seeking some real security in the process,
even if the threat was unreal.
