100 Word Wednesday: Week 20

What’s in a queue? What’s at the end of a queue? Why do we queue? I reckon there will be some interesting responses to this challenge.

The queue was getting longer by the minute, the atmosphere subdued.
No-one pushed or shoved, those near the front acknowledging recognised newcomers, but not a soul made an effort to push in or jump the queue.
It had started as a simple gesture.
And snowballed as those on Social Media had passed the word.
Soon, one wasn’t enough and donations of similar items miraculously appeared.
Approaching the bench, each silent in their own thoughts, strangers made their mark or comment in the Books of Condolence for the Manchester victims.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
