#FF — Thawing Pillars


PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

Melissa’s family Century farm was doing well. Her grandparents would be proud.

Robert’s family grocery store was ready for a change after seventy-five years.

Both Melissa and Robert were in their fifties and had devoted their lives to their work, leaving little for things like relationships.

Nowville’s small community’s progressives begged Melissa to get back to organic growing and Robert to stocking shelves with fresh healthy produce. The council convinced them to collaborate to make it happen.

Melissa and Robert, with the support network, helped Nowville to realize the dream. What neither of them expected was their falling in love.

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the dedicated host of Friday Fictioneers.

    It’s never too late. I can totally see how that picture would spawn a tale of falling in love. I know that feeling when everything is a blur but her.

  18. A touching story, with a lovely twist at the end. Meeting each other through shared projects sounds much better than on-line dating I think.
