Three Line Tale #22: No pain, no gain

Ignoring the pleas of their throbbing legs, they kept climbing the seemingly never-ending makeshift steps carved into the sides of the mountain.

Their backpacks felt heavier than before and their exhausted bodies were begging for relief but they never stopped until they got to the top of the hill.

The beautiful view that greeted them left them spellbound and made them forget all about their pain and exhaustion.

    1. Thank you so much, dear. I’m so glad to hear that. It’s so nice to see you here. Which bring me to something I’ve been meaning to ask you. My first e-book will be published soon. I’m still trying to work out the dates. It’s a collection of 100 tiny tales. Most of them were previously published on my blog. But some are previously unpublished. I hope you’ll be able to review and let me know about your opinion 😁
