The Twins (Five Minute Friday)
Five Minute Friday
Conversation ceased and every eye was riveted to the entrance. Everyone said it wasn't really a party until the twins arrived. Happy and Joy stepped into the room and suddenly the atmosphere changed.
It isn't quite accurate to say both of the girls had this unique ability. Happy, with her bubbly personality and contagious laugh, was the one who charmed the crowd. Joy took a seat next to the punch bowl as everyone gravitated toward her sister. And so it had always been.
However on this night, something happened that would make this particular party different from all the others. Disaster stepped into the room, announcing, in his overbearing voice, that something bad had happened. An accident - someone much loved suddenly gone.
They all turned to Happy, but she had nothing to say. She crumbled in a heap, inconsolable and unable to do anything for those who looked to her for help. Confusion and grief reigned until Joy stood up and walked to the center of the room.
She extended arms of love and compassion. She stood strong and steady. One by one they moved toward her - leaving Happy and embracing Joy.
