He was the beloved of the village, Konso’s Grandpa he was called. Everyday, roughly around the sun behind the far off tree line, Grandpa would stroll to the local market to purchase beans and rice. He couldn’t buy much at once, for his joints were sore and his legs so tired.

On the way home, he would be greeted by the village children. They laughed and hugged him ever so tightly. He looked forward to this moment. The beautiful smiles and genuine laughter made his heart smile.

His dear wife, Gianna, couldn’t bare children. These little ones reminded him that love knows no difference in family, besides those we hold valuable and cherish. The kids loved seeing Grandpa just as much. He would make funny sounds and silly faces. He knew them all by name, and adored each one. Some days he was able to pass out little mint candies.

Day after day, this routine was the same. The villagers would hollar to him as he came through. Sometimes, on his return home, he would accept the given invitation of dinner. He was a grateful man, and he made certain he remained humble.

    You’re in the loop about prompts and challenges and stuff… this post has kind of inspired me for something but I want to make sure it’s original.

    I want to start a challenge where I present a picture. Nominees then write a short story that goes along with the picture. Then of course they nominate people and give them a picture to write about.

    Anything like this already going on?

      That idea is being used so maybe, provide a picture and put a different spin on it. Maybe suggest we write a certain number of words or pick a literature genre. Maybe begin the story with the picture.
