Prompt: A Woman’s First Day in a Convent
Words: nun, zealous, grateful, stature, lick, attend, film, page, recognize, pomegranate
“Ladies, you are about to embark on the greatest spiritual journey. It is a calling, not a job. One who answers this call will be recognized by God on Earth and in Heaven.”
The nun giving the tour didn’t seem the zealous type. Rachel was grateful for that. She wasn’t so sure about this calling thing, but she’d not much choice now. She was here. It was time to turn a major page in her life. She couldn’t lick the feeling that something portentous was about to happen…
“Well set up the key lights there and there. The cameras need to be set up in nave and along the aisle over there and the choir loft.”
The film crew swarmed the chapel of Sisters of Perpetual Frugality, setting up equipment and barely avoiding the marble statues and other icons.
“Ignore them, as we all learn to ignore the vanities of the world.”
Rachel heard the nun’s words but felt her attention drawn to the crew as if to a ripe pomegranate. Would she or the other sisters-to-be be permitted to attend the filming? Maybe even be in it, if only in the background.
“I hope this is worth it.” Rachel heard another nun say as the group passed.
“Just think of all the people we can help with the location fee, and they have already bought cases of our wine. They’re a gold mine waiting to be excavated. ”
Maybe the convent wouldn’t be so different than the rest of the world.
