PROMPT WORD: FLASH

“Writing is a delicious agony.”
—Gwendolyn Brooks

Transitioning. It’s a 6.

Reclining comfortably, cradled between the arms of supple yet worn brown leather, the old woman surrendered to the call of her body, slowly closing her eyes, long lashes fluttering in momentary indecision.

Mid-afternoon sunlight, filtered by the occasional late summer cumulus, cast playful shadows about the small room, the room she’d always referred to as her “library”, the one room in her comfortable cottage she felt most at home.

Half the library was lined with overstuffed bookshelves, reaching floor to ceiling, their rich darkness complimenting the butter creme walls; she was looking forward to a relaxing afternoon of reading until she realized just how tired she felt.

It was as if magical raindrops cleansed and crystallized her memory followed by a gentle peace that swept over and through her like a warm and gentle breeze.

Drifting toward unconsciousness, she felt as if her body lay “floating”, suspended on a pillow of dense air.

Supported by an unidentifiable force, she relaxed and began to dream until she relinquished herself to the dream…the last milestone.

CUE WORD:  TRUNK

“Writing is both mask and unveiling.” ~ E.B. White

It’s all about the lines. It’s a 6.

You’re a what?” croaked my dad, a drib of french onion dip and half eaten chip falling out of his mouth mid bite, followed by, “you’re a strip artist??”

“Why, yes, Reverend McCarthy, I am.” Carissa’s smile illuminated the room with her enthusiasm, stark contrast to the incredulity devouring both of my parents’ faces.

Like a first time patron at a circus sideshow, I looked on half in disbelief not sure if I wanted to laugh or run away, this wasn’t exactly how I pictured “bringing home a girl to the parents” going down, but I pulled myself together and maturely said, “listen Mom, Dad, Carissa’s not a stripper, she’s an artist. She’s owns the new art gallery on Newberry Street and creates artwork using strips of different types of materials like wood or paper or wire.”

As relief slowly whitewashed the dread, my parents smiled politely and said, “oh, how nice“.
