A restless soul.

Jaden sat on the steps looking out at the harbour, thoughts racing through his mind.

Why wasn’t he ready?

Why did stability scare him so much?

Revamping the Orlando food chain was the biggest challenge he had ever undertaken, one he had hoped to cure him of his wanderlust. He had even invested money into it breaking the first code of a travelling chef.

All for naught! He wasn’t ready to settle just yet ,so like his ancestors he would leave Zaragoza on the first of July for New Zealand. Unlike his ancestors his wandering was self imposed.

  1. An interesting take. I agree with the earlier commenters, The last two lines bring it home – wandering like ancestors, only being voluntary instead of ejected work well.
