Our task this wiik was thi worst by far! We had to describe a party or a wedding without using the letter E! I chose to do the latter, but it was very difficult! I could not use ‘the’, ‘her’, ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘bride’, ‘dress,’ anything ending in ‘ed’, or even the word ‘wedding’! 250 words never seemed so long! Niidlyss to say, I am so thankful for thi charactyr E!
I would also like to acknowledge my extreme gratitude to www.thesaurus.com for helping me to come up with alternative word choices for this trying assignment.
I will put a disclaimer though that I don’t really like how this assignment turned out (I’m not huge on writing graphic romances), but I am quite ready to be done with it. 🙂
Violin music is dancing out of a snowy awning as I sprint across damp lawn, trying not grass stain my whitish flats. ‘It’s a good thing my skirt isn’t long’, I think. Ducking into this pavilion, I catch a whiff of flora. I slip into a back row, hoping not to attract scrutiny. Glancing around, I mark rows of Hannah and David’s family and social community.
On a prompt, music stops and all sound falls still. Body upon body turns with anticipation as virtuosos launch a royal air. Moms and dads, grandpas and grandmas, walk up to front row chairs. Four maids and a girl sprinkling bits of posy follow. Finally, Canon in D starts up as Hannah soars in, a lacy gown with a long train brushing against grassy ground.
I grin inwardly, thinking of my own dash through that sward.
A spray of rosy blossoms and willow fronds spill from Hannah’s daintily clad arms. A gauzy cloud highlights that radiant physiognomy, drops of joy and passion still trickling down. Taking in his amorous look, Hannah joins David at a roughly built altar.
“Today, God has brought about…” As Dr. Smith starts to unfold matrimonial philosophy, I hark back to past days, growing up with Hannah and David. “What a far cry from now that was! But still so similar in a way…” I think.
I drift back to now, and catch David saying firmly, “I do.”
“And do you, Hannah North…”
Now Hannah’s soft intonation: “I do.”
“I pronoun—” Dr. Smith’s prodigious conclusion is cut short. David is diving for Hannah. Young and old laugh with joy at this avid first kiss.
