Five Sentence Fiction- View

Word Prompt: View

”I’m watching you, watch over me, and I got the Greatest View from here”

That song line swirls around and around in my head as my boyfriend and I drive along the dirt road to the farm-house.

I stare out the window as he drives, the scene that greets me is bleak, we have not had rain in months, years even, the grass, or what is left of it is yellow, burnt by the sun.

The creek that runs parallel to the road has dried up.

Yet despite the harshness of farming life, a life dictated by the weather, it is the life I love, the lifestyle I am devoted too…my gaze holds firm for the view that greets me will always be the greatest.
