I turned away, bag in one hand, my purse in the other.  Two hundred dollars in my pocket and no idea where I was going next.  I just knew I had to get away.  Phoenix was no option.  I never looked back, never heard the truck start, never heard his voice again.  
I walked out of the parking lot, down the street and down the entrance ramp to the interstate.   It only took a few minutes with my thumb out for a big rig to stop.  I ran up to the truck, opened the passenger door, swinging up into the cab. 
“Where you headed little lady?”  Drawled the driver. 
“The question is where are you going?” 
“I’m headed to Salt Lake.” 
“Well, if you don’t mind some company I sure could use a ride.” 
“If I had minded the company I wouldn’t have stopped.” He drawled again only this time with a wide toothy smile. 
I threw my bag up in the sleeper, stowing my purse at my feet.  I stuck my hand in my jacket pocket and felt the money.  My eyes started to fill with tears. 
“You OK there?” 
“Yep, I’m OK.  Just something in my eye.”

“Something like a broken heart?” 
“You might say that.”

The Winter Girl
A week passed during which Lily walked past the ‘shop/cafĂ©’ belonging to Ash twice but couldn’t bring herself to go in there.

Ash was becoming a little frantic. ‘Why hadn’t he pursued Lily?’

It was Monday late afternoon and he was locking up when he saw her crossing the road a little way up heading towards the grocery store. He left the shop and walked quickly to follow Lily into the store.

She realized he was behind her and held the door open for him.

“Hello Ash,” she smiled the greeting.

He looked so happy to see her that she waited for him instead of going ahead to pick up a basket.

“Lily I thought I might see you drop by the shop for a coffee this week. I guess you’ve been busy unpacking.” Ash searched her eyes for any flicker of attraction to him. His own eyes were bright with hope but he didn’t know that.

Lily felt a prickle of excitement when she saw the hope in his eyes. She wished she knew what else to say besides the short sentence of agreement about the unpacking.

Ash tried hard to stay by her side as they each shopped. He didn’t need much and wasn’t even thinking when he put a few things into his basket.

It was an awkward time with both of them wanting each other. Lily not having a clue what to do and Ash uncharacteristically unable to proceed with actions he would normally take to seduce his seasonal girl.

He purposely brushed close past her to pick up mixed lettuce packed in a transparent tub and Lily half turned to him. Their faces were close and Ash caught his breath as his instinct to kiss her froze him there for a moment. Lily was the first to back away. She was afraid of making the first move to ask Ash out even though she desperately wanted to. ‘What if she was mistaken about his interest and made a fool of herself? This town was small enough for her to be labeled as the girl who chased Starr Forrester.’

“Ash I’m expecting a work call so I have to dash. I’ll see you around.”

Ash was devastated. He watched her pay for her supplies and leave the store.

Alice tried to make conversation with him, but he answered her in monosyllables and she decided he was out of sorts.

Lily drove home wishing she had the courage to ask him outright for a drink in the pub one evening.

Ash walked back to his shop and locked up distractedly. He felt a sadness that was unfamiliar. ‘Maybe you were wrong about this girl Ash. Maybe she’s not your winter girl after all. Maybe you aren’t getting one this year. She’s not acting the way they usually do. She’s just not falling at your feet.’ The thought gave him a fresh wave of sadness. It never occurred to him that he was acting differently.
