Crimson’s Creative Challenge – #166 – The Top of The Hill

We had to get to the top.

She instilled a sense of urgency about getting there.

There was a lot of huffing and puffing, the climb was exacting for two people at our advanced age but she was driven to get there.

She was like that when she became determined. There was no stopping her and logic was never a factor.

So on we went, struggling to put one foot in front of the other, heads down realising this was a much bigger effort than we imagined.


“What’s there?” I gasped.

“The other side,” she replied never missing a beat.

And suddenly there it was. The other side.

“Don’t you feel a sense of achievement?” she asked.

By this time I was sitting down, ever so grateful for the seat some kind soul had put there. There were no words between my gasps of exhaustion.
