City Myth – 100 words

Myth of the City

Carl’s heart flows down an empty river. Betrayed by the city he loved. So many promises. So many letdowns. The myth of the big city isn’t an easy belief to lose. Now Carl knows the truth. Standing alone in the middle of millions.

He stands on the corner watching the sun set behind the giant buildings. The workers depart. The day-dwellers who don’t care about Carl, or anyone, are slowly replaced by the ones who wish to do him harm. Carl senses a man watching and waiting for his chance to strike. Carl flees to a cab he can’t afford.
