For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 18 March 2016
After his tour in the Pacific, John went straight to the antique shop by the river.
It was owned by Peggy’s family for generations. It was there where he said goodbye four years ago.

When he turned around, he saw Peggy grabbing a toddler by the arm.
