50 Word Thursday # 58 – True Release

58

“To be at liberty and out in the London streets was like being out of prison.” – Mrs Budley Falls From Grace – MC Beaton

 

He couldn’t help thinking that to be at liberty and out in the London streets was like being out of prison. Some people needed to be in nature and have trees around them, but he enjoyed the buzz of the busy streets. Nature was insipid, it lacked substance, the air in the park, skimpy and plain. This air, in the city, had character, something you could sink your teeth into.

In an offhand and blithe manner, he stepped off the curb failing to see the advance of a London Cab coming towards him.

Now he truly was free from prison.
