TITLE: Endings and Beginnings
Adrian took one last look at the place he called home for 25 years. When he had inherited it from his grandfather as a wedding present, it looked much like it does now — a dying vineyard on its last harvest.
He toiled every day since to make it flourish and it had. He knocked the old home down and rebuilt it to accommodate his family. He wasn’t wealthy but he was happy.
Turning his head at the call, he sees his wife, Samantha, approaching. Briefly, the memory of their wedding at the vineyard overlaps with the present. She smiled at him then just as she does now. And he knows his decision is correct.
It is time to start a new life where she can regain her vibrant nature that had waned over the years.
“Let’s go, love.” She nods as he takes her hand and head towards the pickup where their children awaits.
