Saturday Centus 11 Feb 2012 The Wedding Was

WELCOME TO SATURDAY CENTUS

                     Somebody special (in Jenny's real life) is getting married...and we're here to report it.  Or rather the summary of events yet to come. 

In any style writing, up to 106 words and oh yes, there can be a photographer as well.  Remember there are more details of this gala affair at Jenny's blog, "Off on my tangent" kept inside Saturday Centus!

Our prompt for today is, "The wedding was at the firehouse."

and so my story begins......


Word that "the wedding was at the Firehouse" spread like wildfire, forcing Mayor Goodman to have a gate installed.  


                              Darn this afternoon sky with unbroken grey clouds and a hint of dust rising sluggishly over the town.  Why not grey weather for a fireman's wedding?  Did they expect a fiery horizon and a starry night?  Meanwhile, over at the firehouse.....



.....not a creature was stirring, not even an escape ladder pressed against the window sill.  No ribbons or banners keeping this all hush-hush.



Not a fire truck in sight or even a townsfolk.  It's half past time to gather together where could they all be?




To be or not to be continued, that is for you to find out next week! - The Town Reporter.  But before next week be sure to check out the rest of the reports for The wedding was at the firehouse.

Aw shucks.... I have to wait all that time? And then, there'll be another prompt and I'll never hear the end of it!

gates on the town's entrance? That's a little scary. Reminds me of a great book I read, about the plague. I don't think they had a gate like that! {:-Deb

In a previous life when I was running a fund raiser for the Boy Scouts and we had a dinner at a firehall and right before the pitch was made the siren went off... I hope nothing like this happened at this wedding.

They are upstairs in the breakroom and the happily married couple are going to slide down the pole??? I'll check back on this one. You've got my curiosity peaked.~Ames

I love the old firehouse. Maybe the people all had to attend a meeting.

That's a great firehouse!! I almost took a picture of an old fire truck that was parked in our grocery store parking lot today. It's actually one the small town right around the corner from us, still uses. :) I love it!!

Sue said...

Now, that was some GREAT reporting!

=)

Judee said...

Well, I'm definitely curious. I like how you describe the hint of dust rising sluggishly over the town, really helps set the mood. Wondering what comes next...

Galen Pearl said...

Really, the person who comes up with these prompts and all you folks who do such clever things with them are really just having too much fun!

Karen S. said...

Galen- I know, and lately Jenny's been letting a few others give out the prompts...it's always very interesting reading what everyone comes up with too! So many different views....and ideas!

Jenny said...

What a neat old building! Loved this! I really liked how you twisted this around, Karen. Such a different take and style from you!

Cool writing.
