As promised, here is another excerpt from my work in progress, Wildflowers for Starry Eyes. You can see a bit more of the circus in this one 😉
And so it goes:
“It is as she imagined. A staging arena surrounded by rows upon rows of stadium seating. The arena is empty save for a net and wire suspended above the earthen ground. Monica had hoped the black and white theme was solely for the exterior, but the two dull colors remain inside as well, kissing every surface of the walls, seating, and even the equipment, which seem to shimmer in-between realms of grey and jet black. Even so, Monica’s hopes aren’t completely dashed as she and her parents take their seats among the buzzing crowd. The performance begins…
The show glistens and sparkles with flame and shadow, sucking the audience into a web of thunder-clap roars and amazement. And as the performance spins on, Monica learns she does not like the sight of clowns up close and that candied apples taste like spun sugar and cinnamon.”
Thoughts? I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by! ❤
