Writing Prompt 06

by Jan 26, 2016Creative Writing0 comments


Why does this lovely girl at a bar at the Folies Bergere look sad? Isn’t this place where everyone would want to be?


The reflection on the mirror is like the reflection into the girl’s mind of all the people in front of her; too busy a place, yet with very little details to differentiate between anyone.


Is this man in the reflection a real man, a customer, or just a fantasy in her mind?


If all this fancy stuff and extravagant style does not fill a girl’s heart, what does?

What do you do now...
