Best wishes for Prince William and Kate Middleton on their wedding day!!! She looked gorgeous and so did her maid of honor (the maid of honor wore white!!! ).
As an image prompt, I was tempted to choose Westminster Abbey or maybe Buckingham Palace in honor of the wedding and pretending like I was there. But I saw this wonderful, daydream-inducing image on wiki commons and went with that instead.
Thick black smoke poured from the train’s smokestacks. I shivered in my skirts and watched the rotary snowplow race away. Its red body was bright against the clean white snow.
My sister would be glad to be here, I imagined. Glad to be away from the dirty streets of the city. That filth was no place for a child, especially her illness prone boy. The clean, bracing air would be good for him. I prayed this delay wasn’t too hard on him.
An hour later, the tracks were clear. My sister’s train roared in. Joyfully, I went to meet her.
