FF: Bypassed Route 45

PC: Roger Bultot
Long long ago, so long ago, that I don’t remember how long ago. I, a retired army man started this shop on Route 45.

 In those days, there were so many vehicles coming in. The business was booming,
Then this route was by-passed. This tiny town slowly started vanishing. Those festive lights, slowly started to dimish.

Now the only light that falls on the street is the neons of my almost bankrupt shop and the traffic light.


Hope this year atleast, Santa brings us customers

  1. I hope Santa brings them! But we all know in reality it's not going to happen. You captured the sadness well.

    1. Let's hope for the best that some fancy company sets up an HQ or something so that some traffic is diverted here.

  2. Nice write - I don't hold out much hope for the diner, but Santa stops for everyone, so you never know! :-)

  3. This has probably happened a lot. I hope your character and the real diners see increased business in 2017. Happy Holidays. Good writing, Dee Dee. :) --- Suzanne

    1. I do hope that too and yes, there might be so many abandoned places that might have been thriving in their time.

  8. And this way businesses fail or thrive, on the decisions of planners in offices. I fear this Diner won't see another Christmas but I think the owner has enough drive to repoen somewhere else, somewhere busier

    1. I hope the owner has enough money to open another diner somewhere , and rightly said, decisions of the planner sitting in closed offices
