Through a mirror clear

Charlotte was the latest in a long line of Ladies Under Curses. She had her mirror in a windowed tower, but only used it to fix her hair. Charlotte got her visuals on her giant-screen PC. No shadows for this LUC; her magic sights were crystal-clear. She was one happy Lady.

As we pick up the tale, she’s already spotted the key interference factor: the gorgeous Lance. His Facebook photos made her swoon – visions of starry clusters and light-trailing bearded meteors – the works.

But the killer image came on YouTube: sun-dazzled helmet and jewelled leathers, black curls flowing. He was a god, astride a Harley.

Decision time.


Thanks to Rochelle Wiseoff-Fields for hosting Friday Fictioneers, where weekly pictures challenge writers to compose 100 word stories. Thanks also to Janet Webb for this week’s great photo.

For my story this week thanks and apologies to ALT, who did it first, and much better, although he didn’t have word limits to worry about. You can enjoy the original here:

  1. Margirene, I guess if it’s on YouTube the image of him is more recent. If it was Facebook, I’d say find out somehow how old the photo is. This would be quite a life style change for her. Well written with humor. 🙂 —Susan


  2. Yes it’s a tough call. I’d like to think this modern Lady would come up with some strategies to circumvent the curse. Maybe she could find a loophole to crawl through. Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the story. I had fun.
