photoprompt-15th-decemberHolding pole position, The Fairy called a meeting.
‘This won’t do,’ she said. ‘For years, it’s been tradition that everything be colour co-ordinated down to the last detail. Baubles, dropped icicles, tinsel and cones, but never, NEVER anything like this!’
‘What does it mean?’ asked the robin that was always settled on the higher branches and acted as Second in Command of The Tree Committee.
‘I have no idea. But I’m telling you, it doesn’t fit and I don’t like it. No sirree, I don’t like it at all.’
‘Sshh. Someone’s coming!’

The decorations reflected the twinkly lights in varying hues as the door opened and Simon stepped into the room.
He wasn’t alone.
‘Your gift is in the tree,’ he said. ‘You can’t miss it. It’s the only one of its kind on it.’
Keri peered between the boughs and saw a tiny gold box tied with purple and silver ribbon almost hidden by the other ornaments.
Gingerly reaching in so as not to disturb the beautiful and artful arrangement, Keri unhooked the box and looked into Simon’s eyes.
Carefully removing the ribbon, she opened her gift, and a new light dazzled from within, caught by the flashing lights as they pulsed a rainbow of colour across the ceiling.

The word ‘Oh!’ echoed round the room, and it wasn’t exactly clear whose tears were the brightest………… Keri’s as Simon slipped the diamond ring on her finger, or the Fairy who was a bit of a romantic at heart. She’d reprimand those lights later for such a wanton display!

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    I’ve chosen this post to reblog for Sue’s Write Photo challenge this week.
    It dates back to December 2016, but I’m feeling in a romantic festive mood and Christmas tree lights are twinkling at me.
    May you all have a wonderful Christmas, and I hope Santa is kind.
