Blue Lights

Two a.m. From the driver’s side, he asked where she wanted out.

Buttoning her shirt, she pointed with her chin. “There’s a diner up the road. Can’t miss the blue lights.”

He drove, and she zipped her jeans.

“Here,” she said, pointing.

He counted the cash and passed it over. “Thanks,” she said.

“No problem.”

She shut the door, and he pulled out without looking back. Shoving the bills in her pocket, she went to buy a meal.
