The prompt for this week’s ‘Five Sentence Fiction’ is ‘Blush’. I had a few thoughts but eventually settled on this one.
Our Big Day
‘Blushing Brides R Us’ – that was the company we used. It was the name that attracted us, sounded like it might be a bit of a laugh. They turned up on time and by all accounts, the car was a stunning white Mercedes, with beautiful flowers on the back window ledge and pretty pink lace across the bonnet. The neighbours waved my Annie off and told me later she looked so happy, sat in her posh limo with her dear old dad next to her. The police told me the driver was a young lad, this being his first job for ‘Blushing Brides R Us’ and by the time he’d seen the lorry it would have been too late to do anything.
