The Delivery

Tobias paced back and forth in the driveway. He was late. Tobias was growing impatient. He’d waited for this day for an eternity since the auction.

Finally, he heard the rumble of an engine. And then his beauty came to rest at his feet. He smiled and clapped his hands.

Marcus honked the horn of the ancient automobile and then jumped out of the car.

“What do you think of her, old chap?”

Tobias was transfixed. He ran his hand along the black metal and the red leather interior.

“Gorgeous! The two-hundred-year wait is worth it.”

  3. 200 year wait? The guy is truly committed. Or should be.

  4. Nice! 🙂 love ya!!

  5. Wow, he has been waiting almost an eternity! I hope he doesn’t crash it after waiting so long.

  6. Two hundred years? I’m not a patient person as it is. Haha! Thanks for visiting my blog for Roland’s post! 😀

  7. Woah, two hundred year is a loooooong wait! Glad to know it’s worth it. 😀

  8. Intriguing. The description of the car is great, the owner is a mystery.

  10. Oh the impatience of waiting for a most-desired delivery… 200 years is a friggen long time to wait, though!

  12. Dear Lori,

    You certainly captured Tobias’ impatience. I’m guessing it seemed like two hundred years?
