Day 18: A Short Story

30 Day Writing Challenge

After years of living elsewhere, she walks the streets of her hometown in amazement.

Where there was once concert, there are now patches of green.

She use to drive 20 minutes and a few towns over to get to the dog park, now there’s one around the corner.

She sees the developments and the bike lanes – is this gentrification? Then where are the white people? Maybe they come last, when the city is ready for them.

Right now though, she still sees the Blacks and Browns. It’s still home now.
