This is my rendering for the Friday Fictioneers post for 4 January 2013. I hope you enjoy! (Genre: Fiction)
Waiting for the final seconds to tick off the clock was agony. I had pined my whole life for this moment, the view of the fabulous fireworks over the coastal waters. Since childhood I heard of the beauty of the sight. I had sold many items to make this journey, a problem to be dealt with another day. For now I was finally enjoying my lifelong dream. The colors reflected into my eyes, promising a lifetime of joyful, colorful memories. If only my soul mate could share it with me.
