Writing my destiny #FridayFotoFiction

As a child, I always dreamt of working in London.

Like the office goers, suited up, with a plush brief case and a newspaper in tow, I would march into King’s Cross Station and board the train. I would walk into a swanky office, do some big job and bring home money.Money which I could use to buy what I want and also buy nice things for my family.

The dream remained in my heart. I grew up, was married off and the responsibilities of a family thrust upon me.

I am 55 now and finally in my dream city, not in the way I had envisaged though,

After the demise of my husband, I moved in with the younger one in London.

I go to the King’s Cross daily, and sit, looking at the clock dreaming of a life that never was.

My eyes fell on a poster today “Second innings- its never too late to restart your career”

My eyes gleamed,my heart skipped a beat,that dream sprang to life once again. There was a light spring in my step today. I could see the line that separates dreams from reality thin down today.

Linking up  with Tina and Mayuri

      1. Don’t mention it, dear. Strictly speaking, I’m still in the middle of a break. But this six word story prompt was released after quite a long while and I have always tried to participate. So I just couldn’t sit by and watch the prompt without coming up a story myself. 😁
