‘FFfAW – The Escapee

Its been a long while, but I’ve finally made back it to Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers in time for the week’s story.. Thanks Priceless Joy for providing another great prompt 🙂

Here’s goes:

Upon reflection, using the balloon seller’s bike probably wasn’t the most practical choice of getaway vehicle, but it was there and  I was in a hurry. Anyway, hiding in plain sight is meant to be more effective then stealth isn’t it?

I had to elbow past gawking toddlers and a few nosey grannies, and may have toppled an ice-cream or two, but those were minor misdemeanours, a small price for the greater good.

I pedalled as fast as my rhinestone encrusted stilettos would permit, the deflated meringue of a dress dragging sadly behind. Should have torn that silly train off when I had the chance.

Most people didn’t quite register what they were seeing – maybe they thought  that I was part of the entertainment. The Crazy Bride, a modern day rendition of the Bearded Lady, perhaps. Anyway, who cares what they thought – the important thing was that I was NOT getting married today.

  1. A fun story, with plenty of vividly hilarious images. 😀 All I can say is…there must be simple ways of ‘getting out of’ an unwanted marriage! But they probably wouldn’t make such a good story. Well done. 🙂
