Unexpected Adventure

Anne Murray knew she was a singer. It was the gift of her soul. But tired of doing the same ole thing, she was trying a new adventure. Tennis had been the sport chosen by her father for their family. Only she had not excelled as quickly as her siblings, so musical talent had dominated; she’d never looked back.
Having earned awards and millions of dollars, her spirit for singing had failed. Today, after months of training, she was here–Wimbeldon! Anne Murray was just about to serve for the Championship, arm extended , ball flying, when out of her mouth came a tune, as powerfully unexpected as her serve.

    Clever angle! No one else will think of this. I had to google her and smiled when I found out.

    Nice job using Anne Murray for this prompt! I like that little twist at the end, too. 🙂

      Thanks! Can you imagine instead of a grunt, like most folks when they serve, you send out a lovely tune? LOL! The crowd would truly have a new experience of tennis!:)

    A lovely idea! And I learned about Anne Murray. I’d been thinking of Anne Jones, who once won Wimbledon.

      I’m not too up on sports but love Anne’s voice…used to listen to her as a child…and she was the only Murray I could think of! LOL!
      Thanks for the comment.

    Very nicely written indeed!

  6. Impressive! I certainly did not expect that, but I think it works very nicely with the end result!
    Well done!
