Five Sentence Fiction: Silver

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: SILVER

The young family of four, hopped out of their silver 1940 Dodge Luxury Liner, the man and woman sit up front as their tiny girls dressed in their Sunday’s best, sat in the backseat watching the stores and beautiful ball gowns in the windows pass them by.

Little Claudia sat on her mother’s side, with her arms resting on the inside of the door, she enjoyed seeing the city at night; she dreams¬†of the future and finally purchasing one of the dresses she’s always wanted.

It was only four days until Christmas and the family had one last ritual to do before settling at home until the new year; going to the Nutcracker, Claudia and her little sister Grace get excited every year, because it was the one time they were allowed to see their mother perform on stage and stay up past their bedtime.

Claudia and Grace have been to their mother’s rehearsals before, but they loved walking the red carpet with their mother and father, Claudia dreamt after every night that she was one of the dancers on stage.

When they pulled up the theater, a valet opened her father’s door and he hands over the keys to the young man, after he opens Grace’s door and the tiny girl steps out; Claudia walks away with her mother, hand-in-hand, she watched the cameras flashed in front of them as they walked down the carpet, Claudia’s imagination ran wild and she beamed proudly next to her mother, father, and sister.
