My micro fiction piece for the Three Word Wednesday prompt this week.
Cindy was going to baffle all her father’s guests. She knew they expected her to show up in jeans and a t-shirt, but she had other plans. For once, she was going to be presentable.
“Ok, here goes nothing,” Cindy whispered to herself while she stood at the top of the stairs and looked down on the party. “You can do this.”
The partygoers never noticed how elegant she looked, because half way down the staircase she tripped. Cindy was sure that tumbling down a flight of stairs and ending up with your dress over your head tends to negate any positive image you wished to convey.
“Wear your sneakers next time,” her father said and winked as he helped her up.
