FSF – Celebration
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

“May We Direct Your Attention”
By Scott L Vannatter
Oct 3, 2013
Sarah steps onto the red carpeted stage at the International Celebration of Technology with a rose in her hand and applause ringing in her ears from the packed audience attending the event.
She saunters to the podium fully prepared to render a speech about the history of technology and the aim toward a future of paperless business and computerized appendages.
As she clears her throat, she sees Marshal, her love of three years, step onto the stage and walk determinedly toward her with fire in his eyes, and she prepares to ask him to leave.
He comes up to her side, drops to one knee, and pulls a ring from his pocket; she is stunned.
Her speech is momentarily forgotten as Marshal declares his undying love for her, asks for her hand in marriage, and waits passionately for the answer to come from her shaking form.
