Carrot Ranch Challenge – Melanie

He squinted at the braided girl in brown hair with his half-blind eyes.  The first time he saw her, she was dancing to the same tune. Has it been 60 years? They were married the next year and she had passed away a year after their marriage. She was back now, wearing the same dress. “Melanie’, he whispered weakly. Melanie, for the first time in her traditional attire, danced exuberantly. She looked at him and sensed that something was wrong. She hurried over to him. ‘Grandpa’, she shook him. His limp body fell to the ground with a thud.

This is in response to this week’s Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge.
