The very first Picture Prompt on my blog! I love the above pictures so much; it’s beautiful and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. The challenge for this picture is (you don’t have to follow it. If you have a great story idea, but it doesn’t add up with the challenge, feel free to just ignore it! The challenge is more like a guideline):
Write the story of this couple in three parts. It’s up to you whether you view this as romantic or platonic. Maybe they’re a couple, maybe they’re friends, maybe they’re brother and sister… It’s completely up to you. So is the word count.
If you’re participating, share the link of your story so I can read it! :) You can also write it in the comments if you want (if it fits).
Maddy and I met when we were four. Being the gentleman I was I gave her the prettiest flowers I could find. The only thing she was interested in was my hat, which you can now find in her closet. It was a simple brown hat with flaps, but she loved it. She said she had never seen such a wonderful hat. I have to mention that that was what she said about everything until she was a bit older: ”I have never seen such wonderful ice cream.” ”I have never seen such a wonderful bird.” ”I have never seen such a wonderful nose.” She was weird that way.
We didn’t see each other for a while after primary school. My dad got a job in Barcelona and we lost touch, even though we said we never would. When I came back, two years later, things were different. Maddy was no longer the silly little girl I grew up with. She had matured a lot, too much even. I wouldn’t have recognized her if it wasn’t for the simple brown hat with flaps. Being the gentleman I was I gave her the prettiest flowers I could find. I told her that I had never seen such a wonderful hat.
That day we met again is now sixty years ago. Maddy is still wearing the simple brown hat with flaps. I again found her the prettiest flowers I could find, like I have every year on this day. And like every year, we exclaim in unison how we have never seen such a wonderful hat.
