It was the house that his grandfather built. He remembered the many happy moments he spent there with his family. It was supposed to last for generations had fate not intervened.

During the war, the military appropriated it for use by its commanders. Once the hostilities were over, they got it back, but it was now just a shell of what it used to be.

Unable to pick up the pieces, it was time for the family to move on. They accepted the offer of a local businessman to tear it down and make room for a new convenience store.

It was a perfect addition to her Barbie Collection. Looking back, Victoria had fun playing with it and learning the basics of doing laundry.

But now that she was married and had a growing family of her own, reality struck. She found doing laundry very tedious, especially with Austin not willing to share the load. Her husband’s main excuse was that it was an unmanly thing to do.

Tonight Victoria planned on getting even. When Austin felt the urge to unload, he wouldn’t get a free ride. She’d tell him to leave her alone and do it on his own.

Sunrise, Sunset

Growing up, her dad was a bit overprotective. When it was time to head off to college, he became very concerned.

“Are you sure, Pumpkin?” he asked. “You’ll be too far away I can’t be there in time in case you get into trouble.”

“Don’t worry, Dad, I can handle myself. I’m a big girl now.”

They witnessed a magnificent view while driving to the airport and looking out the window. For her dad, it was sunset and the end of a day that wouldn‘t come back again. For her, it was sunrise and the freedom to spread her wings.
