Life & Other Works of Fiction. Part I
A rainy day at the end of summer, it was the first day of the rest of their lives, and many other forgotten clichés.
But simply it was this, their meeting, their first 'Hello'.
That rainy day by the beach, when she lost her umbrella, she found a shelter much more lasting.
He walked along the promenade, immidiatley she caught his eye, that bedraggled beautiful princess, chasing along the beach after her umbrella. Instinctively he offered his own, a gentleman to the core.
And that was how it began, as a gust of wind on a rainy day, taking her umbrella and in return offering: A meeting. A stranger. A chance.
Not love at first sight, as many might say, but an exchange of numbers to retrieve borrowed Items, this is the story that started it all.
A runaway umbrella, brought them together.
That was the tail the grandchildren would know.
