The Road to Happiness

The road to the harbour was long and winding.

The old horse neighed, wearily.

I had to make it to the market on time.

Haggle with the headstrong marketers who ran the place.

Bring something back to provide for my family for the month.

Our budget was small and our needs great.

But the market was our best bet.

I yawned with the exhaustion of the early start, yearning for the break in the trees that signified the harbour would soon be in sight. Still, it would be worth it.

I would do anything for a happy, healthy family.


Winding Road – WDYS 135 by Keep it alive

Deb, over at Nope, Not Pam, has this weekly challenge called A Letter a Week. The only rule is that you use the letter of the week … anyway you want. She also supports the prompt with a place, an emotion, an adjective, a verb, and an animal all starting with the same letter, should you wish to use them. Then she asks us to write a post with the letter she has given us, which this week is the letter H. I have combined Deb’s post with Sadje’s WDYS Prompt – #135, using the image above to inspire the tale.
