Faceless

This is my contribution to the Three Word Wednesday prompt for the week. Hope y'all like it!



Michael found it easy to negotiate the ebb and flow. He was just another random commuter, busy getting from one place to another. No one paid any attention when he dropped the paper bag, not, that is, until the explosion later that night. By that time, Michael was safely back home, watching events unfold on television like the rest of the world.

You packed a lot of punch in so few words. I'm a little envious.
