EM-Drabbles – Thirty-Two

It hadn’t been in her life plan. She hadn’t intended to become the poster-person, the voice, of a cause. It was just she’d been the one there. Right there, when something happened. And she’d been the one in the crowd who spoke up.

Of course, she hadn’t known it was being recorded. Until her friends started on about how she was going viral. And how brave she had been.

She hadn’t been brave, just there.

When they asked, she shrugged and said: “Someone had to say something. I only did what anyone would do.”

“Yes. But no one else did.”
