Among the Shadows of Great Men

*** Late One Night ***

He took a long gulp from his cup before setting it down and bragging, “I work in the shadows of great men.”

*** Early Next Morning ***

He gave a sigh as he picked up another statue, silently praying that it was the last one. “Watch out! You don’t want to damage Mr. Lincoln,” his supervisor almost shouted.

He merely nodded as he continued with his work. A few hours later he finally set the last statue down and took a long look at the wax dignitaries.

“Definitely a place I wouldn’t want to visit for fun.”

The photo prompt has been given by Sarah Potter at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Wax) has been given by Denise Farley at the Girlie on the Edge.

  1. Funny the trail you can be led down by reading a Six Sentence Story, lol. Thanks, Bernadette 😀
    Like Lisa, I had thought of wax figures but couldn’t get a nibble. Was remembering when I went to Madame Tussauds in CA many years ago. Just Googled Madame Tussauds and discovered there’s one in my own back yard (Washington, DC)!


  2. I love the shadow concept, I wonce wrote a post about an aunt called The Long Shadow of a Little Womsn. It describes her too a tee.

    Love this six. Great
