This is fiction but it was inspired by our search for a suitable property for a Bed & Breakfast. It is fun and challenging to write a complete story in just 100 words, known as a drabble. Drabbles are usually fiction.
On a Sunday morning drive we noticed a scenic property with an octagon barn and an octagon house.
My heart leapt when I noticed the For Sale sign. It would be a perfect Bed and Breakfast.
We pulled the brass knocker on the substantial wooden door. Upon entering we fell in love with the spiral staircase, leading to a massive master bedroom with a romantic balcony.
We went to lunch to discuss our offer. One of the restaurant’s customers overheard us. “My octogenarian grandfather hung himself in that barn.”
We told the owners we’d decided to look for another property.
