“Aww, MOPED”, exclaimed the seventy five year old grandpa.

 The 22 year old grandson noticed the subtle smile and immense joy in his grandpa’s face.

“What happened grandpa?” the 22 year old asked with a smile.

“Oh kid, this moped reminds me of my young days. Those days. The day I met your grandma, the days when I’d take her to the cinemas. The days we’d hit the food street, grab some food and binge talk for hours”.

Hearing his grandpa’s words, the grandson’s face too lit up with a smile.

“Please continue, I’d like to hear more”, replied the grandson.

The grandpa recalled the old memories, “Kid, back then the roads had very less traffic and cruising on a moped, humming the songs of those times, the breeze gushing towards my face…umm…I miss those days.”

The grandson’s smile widened after listening grandpa’s words and the two continued their walk towards home.
