Beauty

And I hereby inaugurate my hasty attempt at fiction on this blog! It was actually quite fun, I might do this Friday Fictioneer thing more often. Below was the photo prompt for my 100 word story.

Dark bags under the eyes and perfectly miserable, I observed.  A sigh escaped me as I greeted my granddaughter. She heard it and looked away.

“What now girl? On such a nice day?” My voice was filled with reproach and tenderness.

I took her papery hands and led her to the garden.  Would it still be there?

“Came out of nowhere! Ever seen anything like it, with colors like that?” I kept my tone level and sneaked a look at her.

She  glanced at it coolly, disinterested at first.

But her gaze lingered and by God I saw her smile.
