The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo prompt.
A week after his father died, Lou locked the shop for the last time. When they buried his father, they buried Lou’s plans to join his father’s business after graduation.
Ten years later, on the anniversary of his father’s death, Lou stood in front of the shop, remembering his shattered dreams. He said goodbye to the life he had planned as a teenager. He looked at his watch, a Gucci limited edition, as his limo pulled up behind him. Life, he learned, rarely offered only one possibility. Lou had kept dreaming. His smile was bittersweet as he entered the limo.
These are Yellow-headed Blackbirds (most of them). It took me forever to find that out, and actually I didn’t, hubby did. I spent hours and hours on the Internet, looking up “orange and black” birds.

Well, they look orange to me.
