This story is my contribution for the ’100-Word Challenge for Grownups’, (100WCGU) from Julia’s Place.
This week’s prompt is: …as the world turned…
As a young man, Bill had always wanted to have Millions in the bank and live the good life, in a mansion by the sea. Most of all, though, he wanted to leave a legacy for his family.
Poor Bill, being the dreamer he was, never got those business ideas off the ground. Having an ordinary job made him feel like a failure.
Time went by, as the world turned…
Now Bill’s retired, he spends lovely long weekends with his wife and grandchildren, in their caravan by the sea.
Little Maisie asks, “Grandpa, are you rich?”
“No, but today I feel like a Millionaire.”
