Six Sentence Sunday, 6 November 2011 (Annie Brown and the Superhero Blues)

The Picture disturbed her because it hid the secret that none of them, not Apollo and Sunny, not Annie and Rafe, had wanted to go to prom. Their parents had had such a good time at their prom. For all that no one else spoke to them, they showed up to dance together with grave dignity and then to go out elsewhere and have the real good time. When it came their children’s turn, the Brown and Jackson parents insisted they attend. It was a Tradition, and now things were very much friendlier, so why not? Annie suspected her parents and Rafe and Sunny’s of planning a sort of Shakespearean comedy, where the cast was small and everybody got married to the one they were destined for.
