Standing Ovation

via Daily Prompt: Ovation


Written by S.C. Downey

Her performance was grand.

The crowd cheered her on for a wonderful performance in her one-act play.

When the curtains opened, the spotlight shone on her face.

Blink. Blink.

Her eyes adjusted.

The crowd clapped and gave her a standing ovation that could be heard in space.

She humbly smiled and bowed with poise.

The red curtains flowed together with grace.

Out of the limelight, her smile turned into a frown.

As she remembered the two empty seats in the crowd.
