Here’s my post for this weeks Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writer’s prompt. Photo provided by BarbCT of Knotholes and Textures.
“Love is just something we humans made up to keep us going,” Travis said. “It’s just a mask to the hormones and body chemicals that…”
Jen sighed and pretended to listen. She liked Travis, but when he started his evolutionary lectures on human behavior, well he was a bit too much sometimes. Still, there was something about him. Maybe it was body chemicals and all, but she thought she might love him.
The train station was empty, save for a handful of travelers. Travis droned on, but something caught Jen’s eye. Near the station’s entrance, a couple were dressed for what looked like an incredible night. They were hurried, but stopped abruptly. The man bent down and fixed something on the woman’s shoe.
Jen smiled. “Body chemicals and hormones don’t explain everything, Travis,” she looked into his light grey eyes.
He looked caught off guard. “Oh, no?”
“No,” she pointed to the couple. “It’s the little things.”
“The little things?” he snorted.
She touched his face gently. “The little things.”
