Here is my entry to this weeks Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers challenge magically curated by the wonderful Priceless Joy.
After the Rain
The path was wet and glistening. Small rivulets formed spontaneously and flowed where they could.
The rain had ceased but the sky was grey, charged and oppressive.
An attractive feminine silhouette advanced decisively a few yards in front of me. The heels of her black, high-heeled shoes clacked a hypnotic rhythm on the footway.
Her dark coat, drawn in at the waist, endowed her with curvaceous features.
A bright red umbrella was balanced over her right shoulder and she twirled it slowly, first one way and then the other in rhythm with her steps.
Mesmerised, I missed a kink in the tarmac, stumbled and fell noisily.
The woman stopped, turned and walked back, towering over me as I scrambled to stand up.
“Ok?” she said with a wry smile.
I nodded, a little out of breath.
“Time to stop following me pet,” she added, passing me my school bag.
“Yes M’am,” I replied, embarrassed and red faced.
