Lucky me!

Friday Fictioneers

It is that time of the week again when Rochelle Wisoff-Fields,our wonderful hostess at FF ,posts the picture prompt.The challenge is to write a 100 word flash ficion based on that picture.Now Rochelle herself sets the ball rolling with a fantastic spin herself.This in turn sends around 100 writers from all over the world,scurrying for their muse and their magic quills and the fun begins:-)What?You don’t believe me?Ok,head over to her site(http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/friday-fictioneers-2/)  and read for yourself.

Here is the picture prompt for this week by Jean L.Hays.

Am off to spin my tale.This week sadly am not going to be able to read any of the entries because tomorrow am travelling to my home town for a 3 day reunion bash with my (school) class mates and will be having no access to net(no time too) till I return on the 26th,So wishing all my friends,readers and followers at FF a very  cheerful and happy festive season,God bless you all:-)

Lucky me!

A renowned marine biologist.

 She was 30, successful, surrounded by people but lonely.

A struggling artist.

He was 22, a high school dropout with no money, yet happy.

A chance meeting at a stained glass exhibition led to love.

Mismatched, some said.

Odd couple said others.

When they decided to tie the knot, few gave their marriage more than six months.

I was one of the few.

Today, 35 years later, my wife Millie and me, look at the stained Glass door and smile.

It was my first job and it gave me more than I had ever dreamt of.

  1. Atreyee, this was a beautiful story! I loved finding out, at the very end, that that the narrator is the husband. Well done!

    Hope you have a safe trip and a lovely reunion!!!
