“Honey, I’m home!” said the man, getting into the large hut.
“D’you have a good day, Colin?” said his wife, hugging him.
“Tiring, but good. The new classroom’s coming up well. The villagers are pleased. How’s the health centre?”
“Good! It’s always a delight to see the gratitude on the mothers’ faces.”
“I’m glad you enjoy working here. I was nervous about having us relocate.”
“This is more fulfilling than the high-flying city life we left.”
“I wanted us to build something that would outlast us.”
“Wafula’s wife gave birth today.”
“Wonderful! Boy or girl?”
“Boy. They named him Colin.”
100 words

You can read interesting stories by other participants here.

The relation of this story to the picture may be obscure. I saw a honeycomb among rocks. I was trying to show that there can be good things amidst hardship.
In parts of my country, children are sometimes named after great or famous people. For example, I (think I) have a nephew named Bill Clinton and another named Winston Churchill. I have four names, myself, two of which are from a family friend.
I have missed a few episodes of Friday Fictioneers.
