Young Love

Jack was in love the moment saw Maggie.  The only problem was her twin brother, Jack’s best friend.  It didn’t matter to Jack or Maggie.  She was constantly coming around and flirting with him, and he would have climbed the highest mountain to get to her.  Love was stronger than a friend or brother’s disapproval.

A little goat love and romance for G-Man.  If you’ve written a story in exactly 55 words, jump over to see Mr. KnowItAll and let him know about it.

First Snow

The first snow of the year usually brings a smile to my face.  It’s been months since we’ve had that delicious crispness in the air and a blanket of white over the land, and I’m always returned to an excited childlike awe.  This year was even more special.  I came home to see the front steps of my very first home blanketed, with only the pawprints of the cat visible.  It wasn’t just the cripness of the air I was breathing that left me short of breath.  Thinking back to all the work of saving and going to the banks and working with the realtor, I realized how completely grateful I was at that moment.  The first snow of my first home is a beautiful sight I’ll never forget.
