Weekend Writing Prompt — All the Marbles

“This place is majestic,” Marie said to her husband as they entered the mansion of her husband’s late uncle.

“I said that I would never be lured here again after the way that man used to berate me,” Alex said. “But I suppose it’s worth being here for the reading of his will.”

Once everyone was seated, the lawyer proceeded to read the will. “To my nephew I bequeath my entire quantity of marbles, a tidbit to show how much he meant to me.”

(85 words)
