Friday Fictioneers: El Festival

Friday Fictioneers window-dressing-janet-webbIsabel felt disappointed in what she saw: one dress. She thought there would be more participation. In her small pueblo of Calzada de los Molinos,  residents displayed windmills in their windows  on the fourth Sunday of May. She thought the dresses would bring a sense of community.

She pushed a stray piece of dark hair from her heavily made-up face. “I’ll do it myself. ”

Isabel hurried to her apartment, gathering  dresses  from her closet. She balanced on  the fire escape wearing four-inch stiletto’s and fishnet stockings. She began to  hang naughty dresses  in the plaza on Red Light Street.

Inspiration and time forced me to take part in Friday Fictioneers again. I like being limited to 100 words because it forces me to decide what is redundant and what is important. I’d love to hear your reaction.

  1. I enjoy your style, darling. I look forward to reading more of your blog when I get a chance.

    • I think the character longs for a connection to her community and misses her own on some level since she has moved away and stepped into a “different” type of lifestyle.

  2. I was a little worried about her for a moment with choose heels on that fire escape. I’m glad she is okay, the world needs ladies with spunk and determination.

    • I just had an idea and went with it. It’s gratifying to see so many comments that the piece spoke to others. Thanks for hosting. I’m looking forward to the next one.
