#AtoZChallenge April 23, 2018. Trains, Planes, and Wishes
26 posts. 26 days. And 26 letters of the alphabet, one post beginning with each letter, in April.
Follow me as we visit the not-quite-normal retirement village of Twilight, Arizona, where reality clashes with the unexplained.
Trains, Planes, and Wishes
“Shh. Shh. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.”
Terri Little strained to hear her neighbor’s warning. Fighter jets flew overhead, drowning out her words and rattling the ice tea glasses on the patio table.
Laura Evans tracked the sound, her blue eyes scanning the cloudless Arizona sky. As the twin jets circled to the north and their rumble rolled off the flat valley surrounding the retirement village of Twilight, she lowered a cautioning hand then nodded.
“They’re practicing for the air show next month.”
“Damn planes.” Terri popped an ice-cold grape into her mouth and crunched down, the juice refreshing in the late April heat. “They never told me it would be so loud here.”by
