#100WCGU – Wk66 – Prompt: …the silence was deafening… – 104 words – “Samuel”

13 Nov

Have you ever experienced a moment when all the children were enraptured by the story they had requested? The silence was deafening, not from fear of consequence but by a desire not to miss a spoken word.

“I found we had a lot in common and could have good fun if we only tried. Girls can be pretty cool best friends too. It seems as long as you’re with your best friends you can do almost anything.”

The story ended. The silence was broken. Some wiped a tear from their eyes. Others joked about having a girl for a best friend. All had listened.

    Yes, I love reading to kids and love it more when they listen. Good take on the prompt.

      Thanks for the comment.

      It can be magic when you know all are listening, waiting for the story to be read. 🙂

      Times like that in front of a class are to be remembered even if the story itself was lost in time. 🙂

    Lovely! Lucid, it’s still like that! I love when I read a story to my students and everyone is just listening – enjoying the story – the moment.

      Thanks for the comment.

      They are moments to treasure. How much better would it be if we could write the stories to grab their attention in such a way?
