Escape and Abandonment

After meeting our contact from inside the walls, we hid by the hatch well into night, waiting for the others. They never came.

“A Decisive Moment on the Underground Railroad”

We waited for our passengers until dusk by the escape hatch at the outside perimeter. I hid and watched the shadows creep across that wall, calmly and without resentment, certain she would surface. The sun dipped lower and lower until our guide signaled us to go.
All day I stared at that hatch, and in the end it only took a moment to break my heart.
