Rach Writes has given the first Challenge, write a short fictional story totaling 200 words to be exact. I found mine went over, so I had to cut. It has to open with the words "The door swung open." As an added challenge it needs to end with "The door swung shut." Here is my entry, let me know how I did.
The door swung open. I glanced around the room not knowing what to expect. The matradee told me the room was being prepared for another wedding. I thought I'd find bare tables with workers all around busing themselves for tomorrow's wedding; instead I found white linen table clothes draped over large round tables. I counted twenty beautiful set of tables scattered around the room. The china was pure white with flecks of gold glistening off of the sconces, the silverware glistened next to the china making the tables almost glow in the dim light. The Dias stood near the back of the room; a long rectangle of a table draped in white linen with pink ribbon draped around the front and sides. Empty vases sat in the center of each table waiting for the flowers to arrive. Champagne glasses and napkins shaped as doves sat in front of every plate.
This was perfect. I scanned the room again drinking everything in. I needed to get back, I only had a few minutes. I stepped back and walked through the doorway watching the room disappear as the door closed shut.
