W. Chicago Blvd – Friday Fictioneers August 9/13

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.

Fellow Fictioneers, I will be on holiday soon to the end of August and doubt that I will have occasion to participate for the next three weeks.  I look forward to catching up with you all when the rat race starts up again!

W. Chicago Blvd

(100 words)


Was there a tart on every corner these days?

She used to jog too, but never in a white mini-dress.  Her calves used to be muscular and her stomach flat with a hint of the firm abs beneath.

Stuart had appreciated her fine enough.  He had liked to test her flexibility in that rough, playful way when they got down to it.  Now he liked to test her patience with his roving eye.

She sneered and pulled her practical, green sweater more tightly around her.

Her flats rubbed mercilessly against her traitorous feet.

A goddamn tart on every corner.

  1. Dear Denmother,

    He used to test her flexibility now he tests her patients. I liked the contrast there. Disturbing story, if only in the truth for too many women.



  2. Dear Denmother,

    Such a feel of time passing and lost youth in this fine tale of yours. I love it. The first two lines had me hooked and smiling. Well done.



  3. The one thing about coming late to the party is that often the compliments have all been voiced. I, too, had to take a second read to get all the nuance. Really good! As for the holiday, relax, enjoy, and come back with lots of stories.
