Week 5 Saturday Centus prompt

It is so much fun writing a short, short story to go with the prompt given by Mr. Jenny at Jenny Matlock.

WEEK 5 PROMPT

I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder,



"Can we go to the movies now?" asked Daniel, the not so patient, little blond hair boy.

"Hold your horses," I replied as I gave out a chuckle. Daniel had been waiting to see this Disney movie for quite some time.

We arrived at the movie theater 30 minutes early. Just in time to get our very expensive snacks.

Daniel was a little apprehensive about going into the dark movie theater. "Let's go in Daniel. You have been waiting all month to see this movie," I said as I opened the door.

He gave me a look like he did not want to go in, but with determination he stepped in.

We found our seats.
I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder, when all of a sudden Daniel jumped up and screamed. It startled me, and popcorn flew all over the seats. Big tears were streaming down Daniel's face.

I took the little guy's hand and gave him a smile. We slowly walked out not even turning around as the music began to play.


This is a true story. The only thing is, Daniel would not let me go into the movie theater. He started crying when I opened the door. It was to dark and loud he said. We didn't get to see the movie UP in 3D. We did go back a week later with Dad to see the movie.

Poor little guy! And I have dumped more popcorn than I care to admit, I tend to be a bit jumpy. What a cute story, but I'm glad he finally got to see the movie :) Kathy

Hi sorry it has taken me so long to read very good . I went with a neighbour and her daughter to see Nanny McPhee 1 and she cried ALL the way through that quiet sobbing but she wanted to stay

Great story! Kids surprise us all the time, don't they? We loved UP, once of the best movies for kids (and adults) that I've come across in a long time.
