Friday Fictioneers – Festive Scene

30 November, 2012

Big thanks as usual to Rochelle for running FriFic and for this week’s prompt:

All comments and criticisms welcome.


He stood alone, the others having long since gone home to their families, and gazed proudly at the completed festive scene. At the lights draped along roofs and chimneys, the jolly red-dressed santa figures, the sparkling Christmas trees behind windows sprayed with fake frost. It had been four whole days of intense work, climbing ladders, running cables, hanging lights, sweating, breathing hard, but between the three of them they had created a perfect Christmas. The parade tomorrow would be magical.

He switched off the light, opened the huge stage door and walked out into the bright August sun of Hollywood.

  1. NICE ending! Very O. Henry! 🙂

  2. Very nice my dear. I wish I was in the August sun in Hollywood right now. I have to sit on the space heater in my office just to keep warm. Giggle.

  3. Caught me by surprise! I could feel the heat when he opened the door.
