The Crossroads of Life

by Andrew Atkinson
Originally published by on 14/09/2017

It was a very busy road and for quite a stretch a dual carriageway, a rat-run for commuter traffic.

He had to cross it. His senses told him that she would be there in the woods opposite so he didn’t need to call her. He tensed, looking nervously at the dazzling lights speeding by. The noise aggravated his concerns, his natural fears. She would be there; he couldn’t miss the opportunity. He had to try. She would be there.

She was. But he did not find her.

Just another roadkill, another dead fox at the side of the road.
