My Special Day #amwriting #FlashFiction #100words #drabble

My bridesmaid helps secure the clasp of the gold necklace under my blonde curls.

“You look beautiful.”

“Thanks.” I squeeze her hand and admire our reflections, applying a touch more lip gloss.

“How are you feeling?”

“Nervous.”

“It’s going to be the best day of your life.”

“Am I doing the right thing? I’m too old for all of this.”

“You deserve happiness. Everybody will be thinking that.” She veils me with hairspray.

“We should have chosen a different venue.”

“No, the local pub is the perfect place to celebrate.”

She pours me more Prosecco. We clink glasses.

“To divorce.”
