-The Friday Fictioneers is a flash fiction challenge hosted by Rochelle at Addicted to Purple.
This week’s Friday Fictioneers prompt is this photo taken by Jean L. Hays:
This is my story in response to the prompt. (It is exactly 100 words.)
The young women giggled as they browsed through the shop where I worked as a cashier. Much of the stuff was junk, but the jewelry section featured handmade originals. One of them, a bead bracelet, was mine.
This was the first piece of jewelry I had ever tried to sell. I used crescent and honeycomb turquoise beads. I was proud of the results.
Blondie picked up my bracelet and wrapped it around her wrist. “Do I look like Pocahontas?”
“John Smith would go wild!” They laughed.
I felt my cheeks burning.
“Do you two plan on buying anything?” I asked.
P.S. I just realized the prompt I used is way out of date. It was from November. I’m not sure how I managed to make that mistake! Oops. Better luck next time.
