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

MASKED

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!

  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!
