“Run! Run! Run!”

“We’re not gonna make it!”

“We will! Move your tail, soldier!”

Crofton jumped first, landing solidly on the floor of the moving boxcar. Nina leapt after him, grasping the handle of the partially open door and swinging into the car beside him.

“One Hoboken special and a turkey club, no onions.” Mia’s voice rose over the sound of the crowd outside the food truck.

Relieved, he finished up the order, and fifteen minutes later, he was slouching into a folding chair at the back of the truck. He ran his fingers through his hair, let out a long sigh, and propped his feet up on a cooler. Mia pulled off her baseball cap, and her coffee brown curls tumbled around her shoulders.

Okay, so I forgot and missed getting my Thursday 360 post out last Thursday. Therefore an entry meant for last week was posted on the previous weeks’ post, but since it was my fault for not getting the post out, I’m just going to count it for the right week.

Also, due to a couple different contributing factors (including the fact that my life is going to be getting busier), this is going to be the last Thursday 360 challenge. I will post the results next Thursday in a farewell post.
