5/5 Challenge, Day 5: The Road to Anywhere

The last of my 5/5 challenge. An exercise in challenges. Worked on this a while, so time to publish!

The place stirred in her a sense of longing. A desire to step out of her world by opening the gate. The trees gestured. The dirt road a short lane to beyond. Shrouded in fog or mist, she had just a transparent glimpse of freedom beyond the gate.

But she felt too minimal to answer the trees call. This was a path for other people. Beautiful people. Smart people. Rich people. Popular people. She was none of these. So, she shuffled on not knowing a celebration party awaited her when she opened the gate and stepped into beyond. {word count: 98}

      I know what lies beyond the gate, but the mistiness of the path afterwards means the final destination could be anywhere. Glad you liked the picture and story.
