After the death of his brother, Cain spent time wandering until he met a group of hippies traveling in a love bus headed to Woodstock.

With his exceptionally good looks, the women welcomed him like a rock star which led to jealousy among the male members. They decided to kill him and throw him under the bus.

One day, they saw Cain bathing alone in the nearby river. They were about to attack him when all of a sudden a bevy of women joined him.

Amid all the fun and laughter going on, the men reluctantly abandoned their murderous intent.

    Another man saved by the women in his life. Sounds like real life to me.

    I liked throwing him under the bus. Very fitting. Good story. He’s lucky he has a bevy of women!

    You’d think there would be plenty enough free love for all. I’m glad he wasn’t thrown under the bus.

      jealousy or envy can be toxic in any relationship.

    Fun take on the prompt, Plaridel. No one wants to be thrown under the bus… thank goodness for all the peace and love going around!

    Goodness! I wonder if he had any idea what almost happened to him? What a take on the photo prompt!

    Dear Plaridel,

    Cain on VW bus going to Woodstock. That’s unique and imaginative.

    Shalom,

    That’s a rather profound message…I think. You paint a bleak image of the male psyche, pathologically jealous, and oh-so-easily provoked to murderous rage.

    I bet they got distracted by the bathing women. A literal take on throwing someone under the bus.
