A Projection

Dzinski walked into the dark theatre and settled in a row near the back. The movie already playing. Something about a girl who ran away to California hoping to be in pictures.

He wondered if they were already out of ideas.

A few rows ahead, a couple started arguing, loud enough to drown out the sleazy producer’s swindle. There was a slap. The woman stood and started for the lobby.

The man followed close, whispering how sorry he was.

Dzinski followed them out as the girl in the picture boarded a train, a one-way ticket home in her trembling hand.

  1. Dear Craig,

    You keep this up and one of these days you’re going to be watching your stories play out on the silver screen. Well done.

    Aloha,
