100-Word Challenge for Grown-ups – Week #152

The prompt this week is … could I really wear that … +100 words



Morag’s eyes rounded. “No way, José.” She moistened her lips and took a shallow breath.

“Yes, way.”

“Will this fit? Where’d you get it?”

“Try it.” Zena thrust the spilling black chiffon at Morag. “I’ll be back.”

She stroked the fabric, then threw on the dress. It flowed over her curves and puddled at her inelegant feet. Tiny rhinestones scattered over the skirt and bodice shimmered in the lamplight.

“You like?”

“It’s revealing…” Morag’s eyes glowed.

“Uh-huh. Here’s your Venetian mask.”

“Could I really wear that to hide these moles?”

“Remember, you’re the good witch tonight. Behave okay?”

Morag cackled. “I do love a party.”


Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  3. That caught me! 🙂 I hope she has fun!


  4. I like it. Nice turn about.


  5. Nice job, Tess. I waited the entire 100 words for your trademark twist–and found it: No twist. Keep it up!


  6. Lovely, Tess! That cackle at the end – CLUE!


  7. As always I am left wanting more as the cackling echoes in my ears.


  8. The name Morag conjure up many things and a witch is very fitting! Sorry for anyone whose name is Morga by the way. Enjoyed as usual Tess xx


  9. h the images you’ve shown me! 🙂


  10. Your shorts always leave us wanting more.. 😉


  11. I have lovely images of a masked ball in my mind, in an elegant setting, well done.


  12. Zena…cackle…Morag…oh how delicious. A witch’s brew boiling and bubbling away for the party methinks and doesn’t she look harmless in her new dress… o_O Wonderful flash Tess, love it 🙂 ❤ 😛


  13. Nice, very nice.
    Do visit me at


  14. Happy Halloween! 🙂


  15. Absolutely loved the description… and the names!


  16. The Good witch 😉
    Good story Tess!


  17. This is rather sweet! The good witch trying on her opposite. Wonderful.


  18. Lovely. As a witch myself I feel that Morag should definitely go for the black chiffon.


  19. Tee-hee! Wonderful! Thank you for this treat, Tess!


  20. Well done, Tess! I didn’t expect the witch at the end. I know, I know… I should have suspected given her name, but names today are often more exotic than plain Kate or teasing Tess. 😀 Your story was a great tease. I want another installment… what happens at the party? Do tell!


  21. My sympathies are with anyone burdened with inelegant feet. You are a genius at these little touches!


Some things in life are complicated. Let's keep it simple.
