Fiction: Open

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Emily was going out with her friend Sally to the supermarket to buy some food, her mother told her not to open her wallet in front of strangers, she said, “You never know who is watching.”

Okay mom she said, “I will remember, but please do not forget I am a grownup.”

The two friends were on their way to the market, as they were approaching their destination, a young man stopped them, “Miss can I have a  quarter to put in the meter I don’t have change, I do not want to get a ticket,”  he said.

Emily immediately opened her wallet to look for a quarter, her wallet was full of cash, the young man noticed it,  she gave him the coin and hurried to the market, the  man followed them, when they reached the corner he pushed Emily, who lost her balance and fell on the ground and her wallet went flying on the pavement, Sally came to her aid to make sure she did not hurt  herself.

Without wasting any time the man grabbed the wallet, looked at  both sides of the street and took off!

Dig through your couch cushions,your purse,or the floor of your car and look at the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?

I dug out a dime from my huge, “Eddie Bauer Bag, ” it shows 1914. the winter that year was harsh, we had heaps and heaps of never ending snow. Nature was in a bad mood, perhaps we did not recycle the items we should have,did not try to use carpool to avoid using more fuel than is necessary for our daily life.

Then I had a bird in our chimney who by chance landed in a place where it could not get out from,our felines were not liking the noise the bird was making to get out. Finally I was able to get hold of the ‘Orkin Man,’ he successfully got the poor hungry  bird out and took him to give it some food and let it fly away to its home in the wilderness.

My daughter and I visited our favorite city,’Montreal’ we rented an apartment for ten days, we walked, shopped and had a great time, at the end of our holidays, we realized we bought more things than we should have, therefore had to buy extra suitcase to bring them home.

Back at home we were afraid winter was peeking its silly head,we knew we  have to be prepared for it.

The month of December in 1914 was awesome, we did have snow but the rain washed it away and in our city we had green Christmas, it’s something very unusual. I liked the thought of no snow no shoveling.

These are some things I remember about 2014!

He once told my mother, the best way to educate a child is  by registering them in a school which gives quality education to the kids. It’s like a building he said the better the foundation, the better it will be for it to withstand the test of time.

We were given the opportunity to study in a school where they had dedicated teachers who cared about our education, even though my father had to pay ten times more in tuition fees compared to the other schools, it did not bother him. I think we the siblings did okay.…-all-about-you
