Liz heard the bell begin to chime. Its canned notes sounded like a funeral dirge from her perch at the top bench of the bleachers.The butterflies in her stomach started their barrel-roll manoeuvers. Their presence elicited a sigh that was both anticipation and resignation. Stubbing her cigarette in a knothole oft used for that purpose, she grabbed her knapsack, and pinned a note to the spot beside her, “Dear Martin, …”, with last night’s graduation dance corsage pin. One last look at her highschool; she shouldered her pack and headed in the direction of the bus station and freedom.
