Drabble # 23: *A Friend In Need*

The front of the queue was long and Sam had been standing, waiting for over an hour. She looked at her watch for what was probably the tenth time and then jumped when she felt a hand on her shoulder.

She turned to face the person who owned that hand and was surprised to see Noah standing before her. Sam stared at her ex and wondered what he wanted. Their relationship hadn’t ended amiably and anything he had to say couldn’t be good.

However, Noah surprised Sam when he smiled and then said, “Sam, come on, I know a shorter line where you won’t have to wait long to get through.” His grin widened when Sam paused to think about it, but other than that, Noah remained silent.

After a few moments she gave in and followed Noah to another line. Surprisingly Noah hadn’t been lying and Sam thanked him as she set her items on the conveyer belt and had the cashier scan them. She turned back to Noah, only to find that he was no longer there.

With a small smile and a shake of her head, she finished paying for her items and then took her bags and headed for her car. As soon as she was inside and before she started the car, Sam picked up her phone and texted Noah. “Thanks for your help.”

Noah’s reply was immediate and made Sam smile as she read it: ‘I was just helping a friend in need.’ Sam smiled once more and then put her cell phone away, before she started her car and headed home.

The end.
