Friday Fictioneers – 3/15/13 — City Girl

This week’s prompt is a photo from Lora Mitchell. My story is below.

Exiting the board room at 6:03, she rushed to her office. The light out, she walked to her window, now gently bathed in a light shower. Aaaahhhh! Tension instantly drained away as she feasted on her favorite view — her city — alive, gorgeous, teeming with energy and renewal. It was in her heartbeat.

Brent couldn’t comprehend. Always a country boy, he insisted Kate could be happy in his world. Since his proposal, a new plant arrived daily — pressing her. Today’s lily blocked her view. Tossing it into the receptacle, she leaned against the window — happy.

    1. Well, I’m one of these complicated people who can’t make up her mind. I love the country — for all of it’s obvious reasons — and I love the city as well. I’ve lived lengthy periods in both,and they both have a great deal of appeal for me. Just can’t seem to choose — so I guess that’s why I’m living in a small town surrounded by large areas of country. Splits the difference.

  1. Great story, can’t make my mind up either.
    When in the country I want to stay, in the city I’m happy too…
    Best of both worlds would be good

    1. That’s true, but in this case, I don’t think any words would be enough. When you’re in love with a city, you’re just not going to take root happily in the country. I’ve had the privilege of living for long periods of time in both kinds of places, and I love both — for their respective reasons. My problem is NOT being able to decide WHICH I like more.

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment, Joe.
