Micro Bookends - 1.19 - Spring/Festival - Image chinese fireworks - 110 words
Spring right on the heels of New Year bore down hard on Chongun. He considered his added role as he pulled the cart of fireworks past the rice patties etched into the side of Kunlun Mountain. With his brother drafted by the People’s Liberation Army now, he was not only in charge of the family fireworks business, but the rice paddies also.
Another man might complain. Chongun saw only opportunity to fulfill his destiny as head of the richest family in the valley. Provided of course, his brother did not come back.
Chongun smiled and said, “Enough daydreaming, I need to get these fireworks to the temple for tomorrow’s festival.”
