Flash Fiction Friday - It Isn't Fair

Hello again, can you believe another week has gone by already?  So it's Flash time again and this week the picture is a little different. I must admit I am finding it quite hard to stick to the word count of 100. This week I have gone over by 7, so please forgive me.


 
 

Life could be so vicious at times. Just when you think everything is going well, something happens. Life throws you a curve ball, and if you didn’t move fast enough, it hits you – hard! That’s what happened me. I had just got the part for the lead in Swan Lake. It was every ballerina’s dream come true. I had worked my whole life for an opportunity this big, and I finally got it. Then I stuffed it up. One night. That’s all it took.

 

Natalie crossed her arms over the back of the chair and looked down at the little plastic indicator. Yep, she was definitely pregnant.


I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I did writing this.

Don't forget to check out all the other authors taking part in this. You can find them all at the following link:

So until next week, take care.

  1. She could always have an abortion but if she's to dance right away, she probably would miss a few performances. I feel her frustration and hope the night was worth it.
