Happy Birthday killihan-jones!
Thank you for being one of my first followers, one of the first to reach out to me and for being overall awesome! I love you, your tags, your posts, all of you! So here’s a little something for you to start your day…. (edited to thank zengoalie for the beta!)
For as long as she remembered, the little shop on Main Street had been closed, old newspapers covering the windows and dust on the doorframes. But not that day. That day she spotted a dark haired stranger carrying boxes into the shop, a thick black wool coat protecting him from the last days of winter.
“What do you think they’ll open?” Henry asked her as they walked towards Granny’s.
“I don’t know, kid… we’ll just have to wait and see.” Emma replied as she lifted her gaze only to find him coming out of the shop, his eyes meeting hers as he smiled curiously at her. Blue eyes meeting green… and the rest of the world went silent for a moment.
