This post is in response to the 100 word writing challenge from Velvet Verbosity where we are asked to write 100 words inspired by a single prompt. This week’s word is Smooth.
I look into the mirror and use my fingers to push back the excess skin. I remember a time when my face was smooth, free from the wrinkles and lines that have become part of my new look.
My new look (sigh); consists of silver highlights, flat shoes, and respectable necklines. I donated all my miniskirts, high heels, (and those plunging necklines).
I step cautiously, careful not to trip or fall. I feel as though I have lost my courage. My older friends say I have gained sensibility. I imagine one day I will say this to my younger friends.
