fi50On the Road is this month’s fiction in fifty words prompt.  Fi50, or fiction in fifty words, is the ultimate in flash fiction.  Get the whole story into fifty words, and make sure your reader’s imagination fills in all the rest. Then post the link at Rebecca Douglass’s Ninja Librarian website.

On the Road

Seven hours. She’d heard two symphonies and the complete Sherlock Holmes.

The other cars around were no different.

Why ‘vacation’?
