First Line Friday: July 19th, 2019

Dylan sets us this challenge fortnightly. You can check out the details here
Our picture (should we chose to use it)
and our line for this week is:

They congregated up in the hills, far away from judging eyes.

Nobody understood, or even wanted to. They were so blinkered by their narrow minded opinions, They could not see beyond what was in front of their very noses.
It was laughable in a way, but the two were doing nothing wrong. In fact, they were lucky that things had turned out the way they had and they had this shot at happiness. If only They’d leave them alone instead of condemning them.

It was to be a simple affair, just the two of them, an Official to conduct the ceremony and a handful of friends as witnesses.
The backdrop was wondrous. Open spaces and a sense of freedom from the hypocritical community they had left behind. A new life full of opportunity lay ahead, though both appreciated it would not necessarily be an easy path.
As they took their vows, they promised to love, honour and cherish each other and the special relationship they had.
They were not brother and sister or even related as outsiders believed. A twist of fate had brought one’s mother to the other’s father, and they too had found happiness together.

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.
