Friday Fictioneers – Red Dress

31 May, 2013

I can’t think Rochelle enough for inspiring us every week  with her photo prompts, and for curating FriFci. I love this week’s pic:


Here are the 100 words I managed to squeeze my story into:


Dawn leant over her third floor balcony and tugged the line, anxious to bring her clothes indoors before the wind gusted again. She held her favourite red summer dress with one hand while she removed the pegs. But the wind was too strong, it plucked the dress from her hand, from the line, and carried it away, dancing, fluttering.

Three blocks south, Martin stood at his window. ‘You gotta get out there,’ he counselled himself, ‘another girl won’t blow into your life just like that.’

And from nowhere, a red dress floated by and dropped, expectantly, onto the fire escape.

    Oh, I liked that! It’s difficult not to think about Dawn’s reaction and all the rest…

  2. Dear RG,

    I really wish you’d linked. I think you’re way too hard on yourself. I enjoyed this little piece and my romantic heart hopes this is going somewhere. 😉



    • Thanks Rochelle, you’re very kind as always!
      The dress may well bring them together but i wonder how they would actually meet? maybe i need to expand this one out a but and see what happens

  3. OMG OMG OMG …. I LOVED this so very much…I want you to keep writing this story.
