The Sunset Treat

 A group of seniors had scheduled their meeting on the newest bridge in the city.

Their idea was to meet, chat, and watch the sunset together.

Priya was on the bridge staring at the water.


Photo Prompt - Peter Abbey

The laughter and banter of the seniors filled her thoughts.

Seeing the group, she understood that they might have been school/college friends.

They seemed to be enjoying their reunion.

She decided to make it extra special for them.

A few clicks on her phone and all was set!

A delivery person arrived on his bike soon.

He handed out heart-shaped snack-boxes and coffee to all.

100 Words Story for the Friday Fictioneers

I thought of several stories after seeing the photo prompt. Some were sad stories.

Chose this happy one for this Valentine's Day week. :)

I do agree that it is dangerous to accept such eatables as gifts from strangers. One never knows the intention of the giver. What is the quality of the foodstuff? Is it drugged or poisoned?

Do you think the seniors would have accepted the snacks and coffee?

Praying for a world where all can trust everyone else, and together share some food and fun...

Life is short. We never know when it will be sunset in our life.

I tried to bring in sunset, celebration, thoughtfulness of a good samaritan and treats together. 

Celebrate every day and try to make it special for all. Do you agree?

Advance wishes for Valentine's Day! Enjoy the treats!
