Six Sentence Stories: Beam




I'm joining in for the second time with Six Sentence Stories.  The prompt this week is "beam."

The two sisters, whispering in an unfamiliar tongue, stood apart from the rest of the children at recess time.  A lone, blonde-haired kindergartner approached, determined to transcend the language barrier.

"Corinne," said the kindergartner, pointing to herself.

"Svetlana," said one sister.

"Katya," said the other.

All three girls beamed, and a friendship began.

  6. Ohhhh CUTE. And yes - no need for language at that age, in many ways. We could do with learning from them.

  8. Well, I do use delightful and Ivy's right - this is just delightful. And it makes me sad because right now, little girls and friendship are not working anything like that in our world. Sigh.
    Well done story.
