“In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that features a bucket of water.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.
In silence. Side by side. Grandma knitting and grandpa reading the paper.
“Papa, how did you meet Nana?”
He turned towards her, but she didn’t even flinch.
He folded the paper in half three times and said:
“If you think your grandmother is beautiful today, imagine her when she was twenty” – he said and looked at her again.
Blush crept onto her cheeks, but she remained unperturbed.
“Monday after Easter, I dumped a bucket of ice-cold water on her while she was still in bed.”
“Stupid old traditions” – she said with a smile and went right back to knitting.
