Letting Life Lead

Yeah Write #15: Sharp (Microstory #247)

“When will they melt, Momma!?”

We gawked at the cold, avant-garde chandelier.   Clear, glass tubes sharpened to icicle points crowded together forming a spiral dangling from invisible wire.

“Oh, at around 2800 degrees.”

Daddy mumbled, “Or if Uncle Sebastian talks to it.”

      I wondered how people would interpret the Sebastian line. Full of hot air or dragon breath? 🙂

    Get any politician to talk near them. Bet they’d beat Uncle Sebastian’s record. (I interpreted the line as hot air.)

      Haha. He could possibly be! These 42 word stories leave a lot up to reader interpretation. I am finding how much people read between the lines and fill in possible details 🙂

        I suppose alternatively he could be a flamethrower enthusiast. 🙂

    That chandelier belongs on the set of Game of Thrones!

    I also thought hot air, then promptly pictured my own “Uncle Sebastians.” Thankfully haven’t experienced dragon breath on that scale.
    My question is do those shards need to melt in order to fall? Yikes!

    Uncle Sebastian sounds like a guy I don’t want to meet.
