Thanks to Rochelle, our host, and Adam, who provided the photo for this week’s rendition of Friday Fictioneers. My 100-word story follows the photo prompt.

Golden Years

They amble down the boardwalk, hand in hand, albeit a slower pace than fifty years ago. Eyesight dimmer, the gleam still remains; sometimes he can’t remember her name, but he always remembers her love for him and the children. A bench waits at the end, and so they sit and rest for the return trip. It was a day just like today, a warm breeze brushing against the skin. No words are needed this time, for their hearts carry on the promise of a lifetime. The sun slips low in the sky, shedding its warm light on their golden years.

Thanks for taking the time to read. There are many more stories to be found at Friday Fictioneers for your enjoyment. Or just maybe, you could add yours.
