Somewhere over Europe
His dreams had already taken
flight long before disaster struck.

“I will roam the world one city at a time and take in all the sights and sounds bit by bit.”
It had been more than a decade since Hannah had proudly informed her family on her desire to travel the world.
While she had only covered a few countries in the interim, she was making sure that she could save whatever money was possible from her job bit by bit.
And then one fine day, she finally got what she was waiting for. She had landed in a job in an international airline and now her dreams finally had wings.

The dark clouds were slowly gathering over the horizon as the aeroplane came into land. The rain came first followed by hailstones which battered the plane’s windshield making it almost impossible for the pilots to have any visual cues. As they prepared for a go-around, the emergency alarms sounded in the cockpit indicating a problem.

As she sat there looking at the young lady furiously typing away on her keyboard, the birdie kept wondering as to how the world had changed in matter of weeks.
She hadn’t experienced cleaner air in her entire lifetime. With the absence of vehicles on the road and aeroplanes in the sky, there was no noise to contend with whatsoever. It was so unusually quiet that she could do whatever she wanted anywhere without having to fly away scared.
Just as she was lost in her wistful thoughts, the lady gave her some food. She had missed this a lot.

Rock-n-Rogers 50s Diner was one of the most happening hotspots on the Interstate highway. While at face value it was simply a restaurant serving some of the best chicken wings and steaks in town, it surely had an emotional connect with almost anyone you asked.
Whether you had gone through a breakup, had a date or just wanted to relax and have some delicious food, this was the place to be.
You could rarely find people who were on the Interstate but didn’t stop at 50s Diner at least once. to satisfy their cravings and have an experience to remember.
This is my fourth attempt at completing the A2Z Challenge. There are times when I have rushed through and completed the challenge while at other times I have completed about 85% successfully.
So what is the AtoZchallenge?
This is a challenge where you blog daily during April except Sundays and each post is based on a particular theme and corresponds to the sequential letters of the alphabet.

It had been a harsh summer without the usual amounts of rain or snow. The trees in the park nearby seemed like they were crying out for water and care.
The birds on the other hand found some to drink from the small fountain in the center of the park while they flew from one place to another amidst their search.
The fountain was itself devoid of much of its water due to water conservation efforts by the authorities. But whatever remained, it was enough to quench the thirst of these creatures and acted as the perfect elixir of life.
