Forever Means Forever

They walked hand in hand, enjoying the cool summer breeze as they were in this city after a really long time and that too on a special day. Their walking sticks made sharp noises in unison, just like their footsteps as her white hair gently blew over his face. Their faces shone with love and admiration for each other, which froze in a second and they stopped together. In front of them stood a huge mansion, instead of the cathedral where they had got married sixty years ago.

Everything around them had changed, apart from their love for each other.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Marriage' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

  23. Aww, a lovely last line. This is how my grandparents were and I wish it were true more often for the younger generations.

  24. Yes indeed. A forever means forever :) This was a different route than the one you often take and I enjoyed it :) The focus was more on the features of the scene rather than the characters themselves. That made it different :)
