Friday Fictioneers provides a prompt for each week’s challenge to write a 100-word story inspired by a photo. PS – ‘Nightie’ is Australian slang for a nightgown.
Come to a Nightie Night, she said. Everyone dresses in a plain, virginal nightie and are led by ‘nuns’ to a bargain-price shopping spree at the local lingerie boutique. There’s even an ‘Ascension to Heaven’ ceremony’, she said. It’ll be a hoot, she said. And when I glanced through the window to the next escalator, I could see the idea had really caught on. But when we got there it was like a cotton-infested hurricane as the ‘angels’ fought for the best bargains. I’ll take my chances with what happens when I take my nightie off, I said, and de-escalated.
