Now, here is my 102 word story – Grandma’s Secret

With a mischievous smile and twinkling eyes, grandma whispered stories about 1924 Paris like they were a shared secret. Nights at the scandalous Moulin Rouge and dreams of becoming a dancer. She always kept the best for the last, where a brazen twenty-year-old from New York met a shy thirty-year-old artist from Oklahoma and how their love bloomed in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.

Grandma never talked about life and death on the farm in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl and she never shared the secret of how she kept her mischievous smile and twinkling eyes despite so many shattered dreams.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Can’t say as I blame her. We all like to focus on the good times and remember those magic moments when love swept us off our feet and nothing else in the world mattered.
