Five Sentence Fiction- Silver

The Christmas craziness was coming to an end.

Her husband was in the kitchen, washing the last of the wine glasses, she had fed the dog and the kids were silent, mesmerised by the tv….. Toy Story 2 was on the box.

Looking her watch, she didn’t have the heart to remind her children it was passed their bedtime, the rule book had been thrown out the window that day….they had both been up since 4am, curious to see what the man in red had left them under the tree.

She removed her apron, hung it over the dining room chair and walked into the lounge room, snuggling in bedside her youngest on the couch, who was doing his best to keep his eye lids from closing.

As his Mother’s hands rested upon his head, he whispered ” Mum…I love you so much….more than silver and gold…more than the presents Santa gave me’

    I loved what you wrote as well as the fact we’re probably are the only ones who’ve used the prompt without using a silver object in our endeavors/endeavours. We both wrote about the love for another person. You wrote about the love of a child for their mother, and I wrote about grandparents.
