Daily Prompt: First Sight
Whether a person, pet, an object, or a place, write about something or someone you connected with from the first second.
My husband R and I were going into a shop, when my eyes alighted on a shop’s window display. It held a rocking chair.
I clutched at R’s hand to draw his attention.
“Please can we go there?” I pointed at the other shop.
I was in luck. He was in a good mood that day. Things decided at the last minute always irked him. It would turn him from a smiling guy into a grumpy one.
I towed him into the adjacent shop. It was a made to order furniture shop. The shop attendant brought the rocking chair from the display, and put it in front of me.
I looked at it, and then at R, “I want this.”
R took out his wallet to pay for it.
I felt like I was on top of the world. I still love my rocking chair to this day, though it lies across the ocean.
