Today, I thought I would write another short story in exactly #fiftywords.

She struts along the centre of the road. Her umbrella - blood red - held high. She’s a matador taunting the oncoming traffic. The trucks’ horns snort - angry and confused - as they tear past. Lights flashing, the police arrive, at last. “My wife is off her meds,” I explain. “Please help me.”
