Prompt: Diner


For about half a year, I worked in Bellingham while living near Seattle. I ended up staying in a rented room five days a week, driving home for the weekend – saved money on gas, not to mention my sanity. One time, on another Friday drive, I stopped, exhausted, at a diner near Arlington. It wasn’t too bad, just standard road food.

The odd thing is, the next time I drove by, just a week later, the place was abandoned. Totally empty. Did they close that quickly? Or were they ever there?

I’ve never been able to bring myself to ask.
