Actual events…or are they?
Years ago, between college and my first job in broadcast news, I drove a cab for a while. It paid the rent, but was unpredictable and sometimes dangerous. In my story “ Actual Events, “ just published by Close To The Bone, the passenger in the back seat confesses to a shocking crime. As the title implies, the piece is based on real events, though the details have been changed.
In a nod to the times, the main character drives for an Uber-like outfit instead of a taxi However, as she finds out, it’s still a hard way to earn a living and the night shift is as risky as ever. I hope you enjoy it. Check out the other fiction at Close To The Bone too.
