Red – Fiction

Time again for Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers So grateful to PJ for hosting this weekly challenge.  Please follow little froggy for more stories.

Here is the photograph and my story:


I’d waited  hours for my big sister, Sunshine, to get back from her best friend’s wedding. Anxious moments spent wondering about  Rainbow’s wedding dress. There had been rumors of the local flower shops selling out of red roses. All ordered up and delivered to the church.

“So what did she wear?” I asked when my sister finally made it home.

“She wore red.”

“What do you mean she wore red?”

“Red .  As red as the front of Mamma’s Restaurant.”

“Oh my goodness! What did Stanley wear?”

“He wore red too!”


This week’s photo prompt is provided by Singledust. Thank ‘s for your photo:)

  1. The white wedding dress is only the norm in Western society – it seems Rainbow took her inspiration from other cultures! I like how you told the story from the viewpoint of the sister waiting at home to hear all about it. Nicely done, Ellespeth. 🙂
