DP Weekly Challenge : A 99 word story, “All’s in a Name”

I know I have missed the deadline but I wasn’t somehow confident about posting this story for the DP weekly challenge, the power of names, hope it qualifies!

All’s in the Name

Grandma Fatimah was amused to see her trying to etch her name on the stone outside. “Abbu says we may leave any day. ”She looks around at their deserted village, “I want my name to stay.” “Then etch it in soil.” Fatimah smiled, “Believe!  And water your dreams every day.” She never forgot.

The only sign of life outside the house she had deserted years ago was a profusion of wild roses that grew in the soil. “Abbu’s favorites”, she mused. He had even named her Nasrin –wild rose. People said, they never withered.
