TBP Redux 4- A Box in the Attic

 

TBP


“Look, Grandpa, an old pair of ballet slippers.”
“What colour?”
“Huh?”
“Silver or pink?”
“Pink.”
“Oh, those are mine.”

“Here’s a picture of a lady with a gun.
It looks like that gun over there, leaned against the wall.”
“Better give me that, boy. Don’t tell your Grandma ‘bout it, neither.
What else are you finding in that box?”

“Well, here’s a broken coffee cup, and a book, and there’s this thing.
I don’t know what it is.”

“Oh, you better give me that too; and don’t mention nothing ‘bout that
to your Grandma’ neither.”


This week’s prompt:

Objects in a Box: Write a post about the five things below you/your character find in a box.

  • A framed photo of an unknown woman in a WWII military uniform with 4 medals on her uniform holding a rifle.
  • A very worn pair of pink ballet slippers.
  • A cracked ceramic mug
  • A copy of the novel “Letters from the Earth” by Mark Twain with a handwritten note in an unfamiliar language on the inside cover.
  • A small, strange decorative brass box shaped somewhat like a clover, with a hinged lid and a three-inch panhandle
