The gust of wind blew eastbound as the intense sensation of fright overwhelmed Granny Hudson. She went to the gypsy of her town semiweekly to retrogress. She loved to hear the unbroken voice of this woman. That day, she and her prodigious amount of clothes, walked silently to the gypsy’s hut. She wanted to procure more knowledge about her childhood. The gypsy noticed how old Granny Hudson seemed every time she came to her hut. She, also, noticed how much Granny was forgetting each visit she made to her. She always told her about her cats and her siblings, but today, Granny Hudson did not come up to her hut when she was supposed to.
The sad ending to this story is that Granny Hudson died on her travels because her heart died when she heard her brother was killed. The gypsy heard of her death and she closed shop for two weeks. This may not be a happy tale, but not all stories end with Happily Ever After, right?
