MISS.LIZZY



The greedy corporate were buying up the plots fast! Before long, almost the entire place was swallowed. They had only profits in mind.

Now they were chasing after Miss.Lizzy – the 60 year old spinster who refused to sell-up unlike many others. This tiny plot of land was all that was left of her ancestors and she didn’t want to surrender it to the wolves not yet. What they knew, how much valued these precious salt-fields were? Even a walk over them was like a therapy.

With a cane in her hand, she stood guarding – dare you snatch it from her!

  10. Good use of the prompt. A familiar situation: the 'oldie' standing in the way of 'progress' aka 'money'. :)
