Hitchhiker (flash fiction)





Zoe rode down the open road. These days it was all open road since the cataclysm. She was happy to have a motorbike that worked and enough fuel to get over the other side of the desert.

She was surprised to see a lone figure standing by the road. A woman covered in dust.

“You’re the first person I’ve seen in a while.” Zoe told her.

“Where you heading?”

“Nowhere.” Zoe replied.

“Weird! I’m headed there too!” she smiled. “Can I catch a lift?”

“Sure.” The woman got on and put her arms around Zoe’s waist. They drove off.
