It had been a long day at the small corner grocer she ran in the upper part of town. Normally she couldn’t wait to go home – especially after the last client she had who only seemed capable of complaining about what the store didn’t have – but today was different.

Three times a week, after the store was closed, she received a visit from a brawny pilot who brought her fruit from an island somewhere in the western sea. Those fruits were one of the shops best sellers. No other place in the city was able to acquire them and the pilot wouldn’t sell to anyone else. By some form of luck he had given her exclusive rights. He always came at the end of the day, having said it was his last stop on the journey home. She liked to think he came to steal a smile and one of her homemade muffins.

She sighed wishfully as she sat down on her stool which was placed between two of the outside stalls. Lost in thought she hadn’t realized her foot kicked the apple tray and a few of them were now scattered over the cobblestones. One leg was crossed under the other and she looked up, searching the sky for any trace of the plane.

She knew he was out there. All she had to do was wait a little bit longer and she’d hear the familiar hum of propellers and soon after see him walking down the street. Pack on his back and a large box in his arms.

    Oh how I love this, Ryanna! The picture on its own is beautiful, but your words add so much more to the ‘painting’ of the scene. I really do love reading your pieces. Keep them coming! 🙂
