100 word challenge - Silver

100WCGU (7)

The prompt for this week's 100 Word Challenge is:… Silver…

It was sunlight on the silver ribbon that caught Rona’s eye. She was putting away socks exactly how they had been for the last 20 odd years. Tucked under a pair was a neat square box.
Curiosity piqued she sat on the bed and gently opened it to see beautiful diamond ear-rings, unlike anything he had given her before. Immediately tears sprang in her eyes, her birthday had just past and Christmas had become all about the children.
Had she taken a moment before angrily picking up the phone, maybe she would have remembered the significance of tomorrow...their silver anniversary.

Take a look at the other entries at Julia's Place, feel free to join in too!
