She Lived in a Mango Tree – Mondays Finish the Story

Finish the story begins with: “She lived in a mango tree.”
She loved the leaves rustling and crackling together and the soft breeze blowing through the tree. She loved waking up with the birds singing and at night, sleeping with the moon and stars. She loved seeing the world pass her by, the children going to schools, dogs barking, cars honking, children playing. She lived in a mango tree for years and years until the time came when she couldn’t get up there anymore. Her children decided that it was best to either moved her in with their families or moved her to an assisted accommodation. When they told her about this, her features were deadpan but her voice was bursting with emotion. If only she could turn back the times.

    Sweet story but sad when she got too old to live in the Mango tree. She has happy memories of her time living in the tree. Nicely done.

    Good story, Lee. One thing we can’t do is turn back time. Good she has family to help her and her happy memories. 🙂 — Suzanne
