#FF — Biggest Audition Ever


PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

I woke up in a dressing room. Frenzied prep permeated. Behind my seat was a make-up person.

Where am I? What’s going on?”

The gentleman dusting my cheeks with powder smiled and nodded in the mirror.

Preparation complete, I and the rest of the players were pointed towards the stage.

In the wings, a tall androgynous figure in a choir gown smiled and spoke to us, “Do your best.”

We found ourselves on stage, under bright hot lights, in front of a waiting audience.

The Emcee said, “Here’s the new crop of Heaven wannabes.”

Then: “You may begin.”

  1. Now there’s a terrifying thought! I’d better start practicing, ha ha.
    I’ve been thinking about the afterlife a lot lately. Your story adds one more layer to the lot in my head! ❤
