The 6 Dollars

The 6 Dollars

 

Late. Dark. A woman is standing in the street, waiting for the light to change. She had just left the corner deli. A bag with a dozen eggs, $1.99—all she could afford to buy. She paid with a $10 bill. Before leaving the deli, she thought about putting the money back in her purse. Instead, she clutched the change in her hand. It’s not fair, it’s not fair! Before the light changed, a strong gust of wind made a $5 bill and a dollar bill fly. She ran to try to retrieve them. Too late. The money kept flying away.
