Oh, I haven’t done this in so long! It was like trying to ride a bike again after having not been on one for awhile. I’m excited to be back and part of this community again. It’s always a challenge, writing a story under 100 words, but one that is fun and exciting.
Here’s this week’s prompt:
And here’s my submission, 96 words short 🙂
She had been beautiful, vivacious, alive.
So many years ago, she’d had no choice. She’d had no say.
She had decided to make the most of the match with the man she had never met, the one that had paid her parents the most for her hand.
She watched as her mother adjusted her wedding dress by the fire every night for weeks.
She watched, but felt detached.
Now, all these years later, she was not that young woman.
Now, she adjusted her daughter’s wedding dress by the fire.
As her daughter watched.
Beautiful, vivacious, alive.
