There was agreement that the room needed a fresh coat of paint. Disagreement was on the choice of color. Daughter wanted a pink color. Mother wanted a yellow or a white, a color that was bright. Father preferred green, the color of almighty, but also a wanted consensus. As controller of purse string, father had hoped that his wish would prevail.

Time passed. Consensus eluded. Father passed away. Daughter got a job and moved to a different city. Property changed hand.

Today, standing before the brightly painted two storey building, their old home, the memory of earlier times flashed.
