Out-of-my-league? So was every other girl here.

No way could I afford Befonte’s Ball, our last senior extravaganza. No surprise. Hadn’t gone to any of them.

But if I didn’t do something to take a chance now, in fifteen days… our paths might never cross again.

Thank God for work-study … the landscape maintenance crew.

After trimming the roses, a little shorter than necessary… a dozen white long-stemmed.

Now to find some tissue paper and a ribbon.

Pop made me take a chance… enroll here. He’s gone now. But I think he would approve … taking one more chance.



Written for The Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge. Requirements: September 28, 2016 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a prickly story. Is it the temperament of a character that is prickly or is it a hardship he or she faces? You can write about cacti, rose thorns or other natural elements. Think about how the prickliness conveys the story.
