a story :D

It was a cold winter evening.Tina was sitting in her chair next to the window, watching the cars in the road outside.

I knocked the door and it took her a lot of time to open it.When I said hello,she didn’t answer me. She just went back to her seat. She looked sad and lonely”. What’s going on?” I asked,but I didn’t get any answer.I went towards her. She had been my best friend for the last thirty years and I felt really worried seeing her  in such a bad mood.”I can’t remember the people in my life. I have forgotten the faces of my children! I feel so empty, because memories is all I had”. “Well you still have me” I said knowing exactly what I had to do.

I went in the room and I opened her old dusty box. It was full of old pictures. I took them and I put them in order, from the time she was a young girl , until last Christmas when her children came to visit her. I come downstairs, I sat next to her and I started explaining every picture one by one. As I was talking noticed that she looked happier. It was like watching her life in a film. By the time I had finished she was smiling. Everything was better now for one good reason. I had brought history to life for Tina in a really exciting way.

  1. Ooops, sorry! You need to adjust the post settings so as for your usernames to appear on each one’s post. Great work Danai, then! It was an enjoyable read that struck a cord with me, as my grandfather shows the same signs of forgetfulness…
