Pete jabbed his finger in the direction of the historic car that had pulled up across the road from the little cafe he frequented on Fridays “Hey Barb, how much you think It’d cost to restore something like that”.
The elderly shop assistant squinted from behind the counter out into the street “Hmm, more then you can afford Pete my boy”.
Pete stood, stretching out his aching muscles “I’m going to make it big Barb. Just you wait and see”.
Barbara sighed as she watched him get up and leave “For your sake I hope so Pete. I hope so”.

I love these short story challenges Sarah. It goes to show that a picture really does tell a thousand words. I’d love to see you do more of these, I hope Pete makes it big too 😀
🙂 Thanks 🙂
I was shocked when I looked it up and realised I hadn’t participated in Friday Fictioneers since November 2015 and that I hadn’t posted any fiction pieces since June last year. Oops!
It has been a while. Nice to see you back. I like your story, but I was confused. Are Jeff and Pete the same person?
Yes! Oh dear. I originally named him Jeff but as I was cutting it down to 100 words my friend Pete rang me, so I thought I’d change the name 🙂 I obviously missed the first instance!! I’ve corrected that now 🙂 thanks :-).
Wonderful story with a dash of melancholy.
Thank you 🙂
