And yes I know my story this week is more than 100 words, sorry about that! Still hoping you enjoy!
The most important thing is the setting of the stage. Everyone knew that, even the most novice actress.
Take the Easter lily for example, She thought to herself, settling more comfortably on the sofa, first imported from Japan in the mid twentieth century as she herself had been.
There was the nighttime panorama of the city, home for half a century, the place of her success. Working her way from unknown to world famous actress of stage and screen.
Not long now, she thought. Her vision was fading rapidly, too much damage from her tragic fall off the stage.
Fateful words, “we can’t repair your eyes, ma’am” both corneas were too badly lacerated!”
With quiet patient determination she sat alone and waited … like a final curtain call … for her final view.
Thanks for the read,
