Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the eighth installment of Tom
Cagley Sr's short shory collections entitled, “Travel At Your Own
Story 15: Weight and Balance.
Cue:Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone is playing in the background…
You are one of four people ---two men, two women, four strangers ----who volunteer to get off an overcrowded flight in a small Midwestern city. The airline puts you all up at a nearby motel, gives each a voucher for dinner and a travel voucher for a future flight with them, boarding passes for the first plane out in the morning to your destination.
You go to dinner together. The conversation is strained at first but after a drink you begin to talk freely. You each tell a story.
No one’s life will ever be the same. Everyone’s will change --- not that night but soon.
I encourage you to provide feedback on these stories or any of the earlier shorts by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
