Thursday Photo Prompt – Crypt – #writephoto

It was lovely and quiet here. Such a perfect choice.
She loved the way the sunlight teased through the windows, giving the image of spotlights on the stone floor as if anticipating petite ballerinas to dance to the haunting music that would echo round the pillars tomorrow.
Ah yes, tomorrow.
When her family would gather, old and new, united after thirty years.
It was all her doing of course.
No-one would have wanted to miss this performance, her unique encore, as she gracefully and elegantly bowed out of their lives.

The next day from her vantage point in the eaves, she observed them.
Gold, furs and jewels, each trying to upstage the other to prove they were better than the next. To the outsider, children mourning the loss of their mother.
Sycophantic liars, all hungry and eager to learn what had been left to them in her will.
She chuckled, blending in perfectly with the organ music playing in the background and the chants of an invisible choir on a pre-recorded tape.
They would be furious when they learned she had spent her entire wealth on the building of this crypt for her final resting place.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
