The Shed
“The Shed”Gregory A. GilbertCreative Writing[pic 1]February 15, 2012[pic 2]The world isnt always what it seems. ¬†When a mysterious garden shed appears along the fence line, an unlikely pair find themselves transported to a place where their very survival will depend upon their willingness to cooperate. ¬†Two neighbors who arent exactly the best thereof – A scientist who has no time for aesthetics; an artist who is more creative than logical; they meet a gardener who helps them grow together. ¬†Can unapparent love be revealed in two hearts with so many thorns? ¬†As the two attempt to find their way home, they find that collaboration is key‚Ķ the key to their love. ¬†A story of two testy people put to the test. ¬†A greater test above the rest: ¬†The test of love.The ShedI.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†The day started out like any other. ¬†The sun was almost straight up lighting a clear blue sky; the suburban-size tree branches had their leaves twinkling in the ever-so-slight breeze. ¬†Off somewhere close, birds were chirping while squirrels chittered. ¬†A lovely spring day. ¬† It was for everyone but two particular neighbors.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Margaron Brochard was bright and brilliant. ¬†Originally Margery, after her great-grandmother, she changed her name to the more self-suited Greek for “pearl,” having become tired of childhood taunts. ¬†Despite the change, peers and colleagues in the scientific community referred to her as “Marjoram,” because of her pungent but natural scent. ¬†Frustrated with the lack of peoples understanding of what she considered basic knowledge, she usually avoided human interaction.

Antoine DuBois was the complete opposite ‚Äď a Bohemian artist who let his mind wander. ¬†Attracted to literature and art, he wrote some, painted some, but mostly, he mooched. ¬†Living in the home his grandmother left him, along with a small stipend for incidentals, he lived “the life of Riley” or so he made it appear, much to the chagrin of his neighbors. ¬†Especially a crabby scientist, who had the unfortunate luck to have just purchased her home between a man who traveled so often his house seemed vacant and a charming old woman who stayed inside and didnt want to speak with anyone ‚Äď but died a month later, leaving her home to her artist grandson, of all people.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Margaron stood in place and stared. ¬†What was to be a routine trip to her patio to check on her horticulture experiment turned into something quite different. ¬†For there, straddled on the property line, was a shed. ¬†A garden shed. ¬†It appeared to be half on her property and half on that artists property. ¬†Why would he do such a thing? ¬†What would his motives be? ¬†Despicable man. ¬†There was a door. ¬†Lets see what that artist had in this shed. ¬†Margaron marched over to the door and flung it open. ¬†It was quite an ordinary shed, with ordinary gardening tools resting along walls and some empty flower pots stacked haphazardly on the floor.
