A Sweet Surprise

ff

Dilapidated.

The price was right.  It was all she could afford. Seriously it was a dump, but at least she would be off the streets.  The foundation was sturdy. There wasn’ t any mold. The doors and windows were secure except for the crazy little back porch full of plants.

There was enough back yard for a small garden.  She hoped the realtor would accept her offer.  Who else would want it?

A huge smile slowly stretched across her face as she opened the drawers in the desk that housed the plants.

She wouldn’t have to worry about fixing this place up!

  1. Great flow in your story. I enjoyed the visual build-up. I, too, hope it was cash.
    Sometimes, some people need a little break. I liked where you took the photo prompt.
