Often passed but never ventured

Ethel stared at the shop window. Ann Summers. Somewhere she’d often passed but never ventured. Today she’d live out her fantasy. She’d phoned in advance, spoken to the Manager.

He greeted her at the door, showed her a selection and she’d chosen the most outrageous. As she stepped into the window display, the crowds gathered.


Morgen Bailey.

    Wonderful Morgen, I have such a picture in my head now….love to know if there is a sequel. Good luck.

      Thank you very much, Jane. I wrote it (word-for-word) as a 10-minute exercise in last Monday’s workshop inspired by Austin’s prompts. It was fun.

    Love this story Morgen. Such a simple twist, but clever.

    I was visiting the shop that day, so it was YOU. :)

    So it was You, I was there that day and I wondered what the commotion was. I promise not to post the pics until that sort of thing is more acceptable to the general public.

      I confess, yes, it was me. Everything I write is autobiographical. :)

      Thank you, Roy.
