This week Rochelle is using one of her own photos for us to spin a story of 100 words or less.

Emily was restless with excitement, always asking what the time was and where to look.
Hester was more anxious than excited as both she and her grand daughter had not seen her Daddy for six months.
Hester saw him before Emily and raised her arm.
‘There he is sweetheart!’
Emily saw him and was out of her seat like a shot, soon hurtling herself into his waiting arms.

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.

    Airports have so many stories of reunion to tell. Nice one.

  7. Dale says:

    What a lovely story, Di.
    Makes me think of a Canadian show we have called “Hello Goodbye” in which Dale Curd (a guy πŸ˜‰ ) interviews people at the airport. The stories he gets are fantastic.

    My FriFic tale!

    I love watching the videos of soldiers returning home. I don’t know if this was the situation, but the feeling of excitement and joy is very much part of those reunions.

  12. A heartwarming story, Di. I sometimes view the YouTube videos of military men returning and greeting their families after tours of duty. All I knew of my brother in the 1940s were pictures and what my mother told me. I finally saw him when he came home after WWII. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne
