Friday Fictioneers – Anchor Plates

Manor

Anchor Plates

Sometimes we have to patch our older constructs to preserve what we have left to remind us of the past.  It seemed sound when it was built but at the years pass cracks and instabilities began to sprout.  Draped in metal diamonds to ensure we don’t lose what we have constructed all the while learning how to make stronger structures that will need less patching. Preserve the old but learn from past mistakes.

She walked past the old manor and while it was once stately, she now recognized the cracks covered with diamonds.  She smiled. She could relate.
