Ever After

Happy Friday folks! Welcome to my weekly story time session: Friday Fictioneers! As always, I extend my thanks to our leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for providing the photo prompt.

Ever After

The old man studied the tired looking young woman and her daughter as they entered his shop. “Don’t wander, Cindy,” the woman sighed.

 “Can I help you, Miss?” he asked.

The woman spun around. “I’m just looking.”

“That’s what they all say.”

“Interesting name for a secondhand shop,” she commented, changing the subject.

The old man smiled. “Ever After is for anyone looking for an end to their story – or a new beginning.”

The woman fingered an iron-wrought skeleton key. “Just like that?”

“Of course.” He glanced at Cindy, playing with a China doll in the corner. “For a price.”
