This was an assignment in a Fiction Workshop, the goal of which was to create a story in three sentences using no verbs of being and only commas and periods.

Theda sat in front of her vanity, putting the finishing touches on her makeup as her mother burst into the room, ecstatic to take a picture with an old Polaroid camera she found in the attic.
