Leah POV

Rome is charming. It has been so long since I came here. I am twenty years old and a university student. I am studying history, my favorite subject.

I was born in Rome, but my parents decided to go to the United States for job opportunities. My maternal grandmother stayed behind. I can’t blame her; I would probably feel the same thing.

My grandmother and I grew very close. I am her only grandchild. I have been told that I looked like my grandmother when she was younger.

I went by many grassy hills, mountains, little cities, and other villages. My grandmother’s village is old, and she said that it dates back to the tenth century. I like the fact that people live in such an essential piece of history.

About an hour later, I got to the trail that led to my grandmother’s village. The road is filled with dirt and rocks, but I don’t mind. As I went through the path, I got to the village. The village is filled with houses made of wood, but the wood looks new and robust. A few older people are seen sitting outside their homes or speaking with one another. Usually, there are more elderly than young people, but there are a decent amount of people. I drove through many homes, but I got to a particular house that I knew. I parked and got off.
