FFfAW Challenge – 182nd

This week’s photo prompt is provided by wildverbshttps://wordpress.com/read/feeds/33797404/posts/1991299830

She had sat in front of this window every day for three years.
Today she was nervous and a little afraid.
She heard the door open behind her, but didn’t turn.
‘Hello Irene,’ he said. ‘How do you feel today?’
‘Anxious,’ she said. ‘But I’m ready.’
Five minutes later, she was still sitting in front of the window.
‘You can open your eyes now Irene.’
Slowly, things began to come into focus, though still a little fuzzy.
Tentatively, she reached forward and wiped a space in the steamy glass.
The road outside was clear and devoid of traffic.
Now she did turn and smiled at the wonderful man who had given her back her sight.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Nice use of the prompt for an uplifting tale Di.

  2. Great story! I figured she had been given the chance to get her sight back and you provided a great lead up to it!
