Take seven or…..ten

The Night of the Show

When the awards were over you could barely see the people through a cloud of dust as they darted from the auditorium last night. Some of those nuts even had the nerve to speed past the students, leaving them flat out alone on the stage. Had it not been for four larger individuals, sort of like the ones you see on television, who were saying to the students that it had nothing to do with them, that the evening was not spoilt.  

All of a sudden out of the wings, like a shotgun, ran these little bunnies, faster than the wind, past the sniffling students. They broke through the crust of onlookers and headed for the split between the closing doors. Had someone lit a candle, it would have blown out. Luckily, there was no wax to drip and therefore the unrest felt around the auditorium began to subside.  

With a sheepish grin, the youngest student, with a voice like a little yellow canary, began singing again to the people. She did see the bit of spit fly from her mouth, pasting itself to the slipper of her best friend. It took everything in her to curb (kerb) the urge to tell her friend, but felt it would be better left unsaid.  

And so, with a little song, and a bit of action the night ended peacefully without further disruption.

A Name A Day: Betty

©2020 C Bialczak 

Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.  

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children.  

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy!
