For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge 22 November 2013

photo credit: sean fallon
How quickly could one’s fortune change? I used to be the center of attention in an upscale store. I was hot wearing the best outfits that money could buy. The girls would flirt with me to the point I yearned to become human and give them what they deserved.

I looked forward to the day when the gods would finally grant my wish. I was so full of myself that I didn’t anticipate the day I was crushed by Black Friday shoppers rushing in like a mob. Suddenly, I found myself broken with both arms missing and discarded like trash.

    If you want to see the real face of femininity, get in the way of the sale stampede… 🙂 Nicely captured.
