A Different Point of View: 99 flash fiction

Using the same Carrot Ranch prompt of looking back, this pedometer geek wrote another 99-word (no more, no less) flash fiction.

A Different Point of View

Annie still shows up in his dreams.

Looking back to his junior year, Dave remembered he wanted to take Annie to homecoming. He’d gotten to know her during the previous summer.

His plan to ask Annie improved once he talked the teacher into assigning them to the same table.

Asking any girl out was always fraught with anxiety and vulnerability, but despite this, he still asked her out. He was disappointed when she said “No, my parents won’t let me.”

Dave ended up taking another girl, but had Annie agreed, it might have been a night to remember.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    That sort of happened to one of my sons. He was a shy guy and finally asked this gal to the senior prom – She could only go with a group of her girlfriends, her parents were strict to the point where I think they were helicopter parents to their only little girl. I think he still got her a wrist coursage, but he couldn’t pick her up, or take a couples photo either. He went, but it could have been a better evening.
