Weekend Challenge: Running Late

As this weekend seems to have crept up on me and I still don't have the schedule posted, I give you Running Late!

Let me know how many prompts you want, and I'll give you a reason someone might be late for something, be it an appointment, a date, work or school, or any other thing you like!

I'll give you the excuse/s, and you create words to go with it! Any genre, any fandom (or original), and any number of words.

Just link us to your creation here by Thursday midnight your timezone, and I'll reward you with icon/s, a drabble or 100 words in one of my WiPs!

So come on down and grab an excuse!
