Friday Fictioneers – March 1/13

Friday Fictioneers is sponsored by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.  The idea is to write a 100 word story with a beginning, middle and end based on the photo prompt.

Today’s prompt is a photo by copyright: Beth Carter

Life In The Fast Lane

(100 words)

It wasn’t the ghastly torn seat, green and sticky.  It wasn’t even the rusted armrest that regularly left marks along the skin of her arm, requiring aggressive washing to remove.  It was those damn photos of wanton women challenging her from his lap on the driver’s side.

When they’d first met, she was greeted with pictures of classic cars, stylish and appropriate.  The courtship was quick and exciting.  Professions of love had been exchanged and shortly after, the first brunette had appeared amongst the Ford’s and Chevrolet’s.  She tightened the scarf around her blonde curls and frowning, lowered herself in.

  1. HIT!!

    I love the scarf and blonde curls at the end. After all that set-up, then she lowers herself in – but the image you give of her with that scarf ‘n all, it’s great.

    Wonderful, ladies 🙂

  2. Denmother,
    I am just popping over so you don’t think I’m an ungrateful bastard.
    Next time, Le Clown will read your post.

  3. she deserves more admiration than she’s getting, for sure. well done.

    in this line: “…and frowning, lowered herself in.” consider a comma before frowning as well as the one after. there’s a pause needed both before and after to stress what’s happening.

  4. Remembering the big girls from when I was young, poodle skirts, starched white blouses, saddle shoes, square box purses, scarves tied over their hair and around their necks, and cruising in convertibles on Friday nights. No, none of those girls would have put up with this! 😉

    I love your imagery! And, on a side note, I adore your header photo!
