This is my 100 word submission for the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers Challenge, week of 09-08-2015. We are given a photo prompt and approximately 100-175 words with which we build our stories with.
Thank you Joy, for the photo prompt.
“I need to go home now, ” Nikki said.
Eric replied, “please let me take you home.”
“No!” She said.
“But it’s dangerous Nikki!”
“Eric, I have to do it by myself eventually and today is the day.”
Nikki stood on her tiptoes, leaned toward him and gave him a very passionate kiss. “I will be just fine, Mr. Worry Wart,” she said, as she slowly moved away from him.
With shaking hands and beads of perspiration trickling down her forehead, Nikki reached for the handrail and forced herself to step on the bus. She was extremely fidgety, but managed to keep a smile on her face.
She got off the bus and felt like skipping and singing like a small child, so she did!
Standing in front of her apartment she called Eric and screamed with excitement, “Nikki is home safe and sound and she did not let the distorted view along the way stop her from getting here.”
