Thursday Result of WEW #10

Had a nice day of recouping after being sick most of the night. Hence the very late posting. The comments have been fun - keep them coming!
WEW #10
Prompt: askance, zipper, granddame, picket, hooey

The granddame of the ball wore her boa, tiara and shawl as if that were the norm. No one dared say otherwise. Even though her tiara sat askance, not a peep was uttered. Until her grandson roared into the room yelling, "hooey, hooey!" He stopped dead in front of his grandmama, his shirt sticking out his zipper as if it were a white flag proposing a truce. 

She gathered him up into her arms and he whispered, "I love you, Grandmama." As she hugged him to her he gave her tiara a poke back into place and they shared a wink.

  1. Endearing image, disheveled boy innocent in his response and the special bond that he shares with grandma of unquestioning acceptance.
