For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 10 January 2020

Brian asked her to prom. It was meant as a joke instigated by his friends. When she said yes, he got himself into a predicament.

Hannah was a younger version of Olive Oyl. A member of the swim team, she was tall and plain like a stick. For sure, there were better prospects out there.

Brian needed a way out, but how?

A week before the prom, Hannah was hailed as a hero for saving a drowning child.

What difference a day made. Now, Brian couldn’t wait to take her to the prom to rub off on her new-found fame.

    I’m not sure I like Brian very much. I hope he isn’t lucky enough to end up with Hannah long term.

    Dear Plaridel

    Perhaps Brian will find that Hannah is a person well worth knowing. I’m not sure he’s one, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    I agree with Rochelle’s assessment of the situation and I hope Hannah figures that one out on her own.

    I really hope Hannah dumps him, she deserves better. You managed to describe his moronic superficiality very well.

    Let’s call him Shallow Brian. He’s definitely no Popeye.

    Hmmm, I don’t like Brian much and she deserves so so much better. I hope she finds out the true nature of his character. Nicely written!

    I enjoyed this story about teenagers being teenagers. Kids are superficial, and you capture that well. But that superficiality can be interesting, as here, so can we have another Brian and Hannah story, please?

    I don’t like Brian. Of course, he’s a superficial teenager but still… Hannah could do better!

    Brian sounds like a typical teenaged boy. Well-told story, Plaridel.
