You could almost hear her squeal as he swooped her up in his arms and kissed her.
Playful and passionate, so much in love. Nothing could sway their joy in each other.
The detail was amazing, accurate and perfectly defined.
The sculptor was pleased with his creation, one of his best, and knew it would be the talk of the town. His subjects had been all for it, happy to let his interpretation of their holiday snaps take whatever direction he chose.

The statue was draped in a silver sheet and roped off ready for  the local Mayor to unveil.
There was a buzz of excitement as he finished his speech and the sheet was removed.
The crowd gasped as cameras flashed.
‘Well I never!’ gushed Mrs Weatherspoon.
‘Obviously you did!’ said Bert Brewster.
The applause was deafening as the ‘models’ for the statue were recognised.
Both were well into their eighties now and the statue was for the local retirement home gardens under the title of  ‘Eternal Youth in Love’.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
