I have written the start of a short story, I don’t know where it’s going but I will add to it from time to time and hopefully we might have a bit of storytelling going on. If you like it add to it or give the next part some direction. Thought we could have some fun with it. So what happens next?
The Charade –
He leant towards her and in one fluid movement flipped open a silver card case. For a moment she was stunned as the light played on the silver, it almost appeared to shimmer. She reached forward and plucked a card from the case faking a confidence that she didn’t feel. Once the card was in her hand he pulled the case away and slipped it back into his waistcoat pocket. “Will you contact me when you’re free.” He asked shyly.
“I will” She replied. This was not a situation she was used to, normally she would be working but as a favor to her boss she had attended this small party, she was feeling a little uncomfortable, everyone else here was more sophisticated and far more beautiful. Her boss had lent her a classy dress to attend the party and she did feel beautiful in it but knew she was out of her depth. She looked up at the young handsome man in front of her, he casually flicked a lock of hair away from his eyes and returned her gaze, she loved floppy hair. She glanced down at the card that was still in her hand, Mr. Carl Ward, he had handed her his card obviously believing that she was of his class and she didn’t have the nerve to refuse the card.
So the charade continued…..
