Friday Fictioneers-Pink Crinoline


copyright-Janet Webb

I fell off my pink cloud with a thud. – Elizabeth Taylor

Jen leans on the railing, cigarette in hand. Smoke hangs like dragon’s breath around her. The window screeches on the track as Tracy opens it. Walking behind Jen, she kisses her gently on the neck.

Nice dress.

Gee, thanks.

Your mom thinks she can still turn you straight huh?

With crinoline, it seems.

Tracy grabs the cigarette from Jen’s hand, mashes it in the plant.

I hate when you smoke.

I hate when she sends me dresses.

We’re okay, you know.

I know, Honey.

Jen removes the dress from the railing, letting it fall. Descent, prolonged by the springtime breeze.

100 Words/ Genre: Hell, I don’t know.

Thank you Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers. It is such a fun, crazy, and sometimes discouraging exercise in discipline. I enjoy it immensely. Kudos and criticisms are most welcome. Bring it on!

  1. the picture is great. the story even better. And i for one love crinoline and would happily wear it, with the right shoes of course.

      • See you went traditional and cute girl. I would probably wear them with my sky high black velvet wedges. They are sexy and easy to dance in, and a dress like that screams TAKE ME DANCING

      • I do love me some wedge heels. I’m wearing them right now. Giggle.

        There’s nothing like dancing in wedge heels. I don’t have to worry about breaking my ass in them, because I won’t fall. 😉

  2. Nice portrayal of the rejection of archetypes — the pretty princess dress. Thanks for the follow — I hope you find time to browse and that you enjoy your time there.

  3. I am anxious to start reading these tomorrow. I don’t until after I have linked mine. It will be added tonight after 10pm. I read yours because it was in my email queue and you read my stuff, anyway.
    It was wonderful. It made me think and I like that.
    Mine is a bit … different. Let me know what you think (you always do!).

  4. I thought this was very well written. The structure flowed and three lives in a 100 words came out very clear.
