Dylan is the host of First Line Friday.

stjohnsbridgeIt is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest.

Your line for this week is:

“Never burn a bridge you could push them off later.”


“Never burn a bridge you could push them off later” these words of his father echoed in his ears as he crossed the bridge and stepped on the other side. He was starting a new chapter in his life. Burning bridges would be an accurate description of this move. He had quit his job, sold his house and car and was moving bag and baggage to a new country. His wife didn’t think that it was the right decision but she loved him and was waiting for him to settle in his new job before joining him. He wondered how the people who had made fun of his decision would react when they will find out the lucrative salary and perks he was being given here. Maybe they will want favors from him, maybe they would want him to look for similar opportunities for them too, he thought. That would be what his father meant, that he could push those selfish people off the bridge of friendship.
