#3LineTales Week 119 ‘Dreaming of a Ballerina’ #FlashFiction #MondayBlogs

Ballerina

“Last night I dreamt I was a ballerina, wearing a pink, gauze tutu, dancing barefoot to Swan Lake in an underpass, while outside the birds sang and the wind shook the leafy trees.”

“That sounds like fun, but now let’s get back to the real world, shall we?” said my physiotherapist, rolling up my hospital gown and massaging my legs.

“Will I ever walk again, Agnes?” I asked and she smiled. “You won’t be dancing anytime soon, but with your positive attitude, more therapy and hard work, you could be the one in eight whose muscles start working again.”

#3LineTales Week 119 #FlashFiction ‘First Date’

First Date

 The children pointed to the orange scarf she had asked him to wear and ran towards him, begging him to tell them a story, so he told them about the extraterrestrial children who had brought magical stones as gifts for their earthling friends.

She watched her enthusiastic students enthralled as he improvised his story and she knew he was friendly, caring, creative, and had a sense of humour.

Months later, when he asked her why she had arranged their first, blind date at such an unusual place, she replied, ‘I wanted to get to know you as soon as possible.’

I couldn’t resist writing three lines inspired by this colourful photograph!

The Letter

I’d watched the beautiful woman with the troubled look, every week, for months, as I cleaned the windows of her apartment block, wishing for an excuse to speak to her, but she never seemed to notice me.

My heart raced the day she leaned out of her window and grabbed my hand. “Please post his letter, but don’t tell my parents,” she said and rushed back inside her room.

I burned the letter after reading it; she didn’t need him anymore, because I’d be her hero, the man who would set her free from her prison and take her where no-one would ever find her.
