Penny stared at the pictures of Castle Berkshire in her grandfather’s photo album. He’d grown up near the castle and stayed there a few times before coming to America. He described the charm and elegance of the rooms and always said he wanted to go back and take Penny with him.

He died before he realized that dream. But Penny was determined to make the trip—for both of them. What’s another credit card charge. So she booked the cheapest room possible.

The castle was more beautiful than the pictures. And her room was perfect. Grandfather would have loved it.

This weeks phrase: “Her lips were red and perfectly shaped, her cheeks blushed prettily when she spoke.” – Neil Gaiman, Stardust
