Rosie lived inside a Wall she couldn’t see until the stranger sat in her booth.

“How do you do it?” he asked.

“Do what?” Rosie tucked the pencil behind her ear and stuffed the order pad in her pocket.

“Live with the Wall,” he said, as he turned to look outside. “Aren’t you claustrophobic?”

Rosie followed his gaze.

“Coffee?” he prodded.

She remembered nothing else about him. The Wall followed her now, lurking outside windows, looming over buildings, creeping forward to clutch her throat with knobby fingers.

Rosie planned, engineered her freedom, fearing what would happen if she didn’t escape.


Keep on writing.

  1. only after he mentioned it’s existence did it start to bother her. I like a story that has depth this way. and the mention of a stranger sort of hints at a mystical encounter.

  2. Sometimes it just takes a word or phrase to turn your long-held beliefs upside down. I think she is better off knowing the truth. That gives her a chance at coping. It now is her choice whether she stays behind the wall or leaves.
