Very short work of fiction. Just for fun.

She decided to wear her pretty red dress today, why she didn't know, except that it was

 

her favorite color. She giggled to herself as she imagined she was all grown up, that she

 

was called the Lady In Red. Oh how she would be very exotic and mysterious and all the

 

boys would swoon as she passed by, she would be the most popular girl in her class.

 

 

Suddenly her train of thought was broken when she heard her mother yelling from

 

downstairs, “Lucy you get down here right now young lady”. So hurrying up and getting

 

dressed she rushed down the stairs and with the most innocent voice and the prettiest eyes

 

you ever saw she looked up at her mother and said: “yes ma’am.”

 

 

“Don’t you yes ma’am me, young lady, you get out there in the yard right now and get

 

your toys picked up, especially that red wagon. Someone is going to trip on that stuff one

 

day and it will probably be me with my luck and hurry up or you’ll be late for school.”

 

“Yes, ma’am,” Lucy replied as she darted out the door to the front yard.

 

She always loved this time of the day when the sun was coming up over the horizon.

 

How it made the color of the landscape so much redder and the sky so much more

 

brilliant, with layer upon layer of red, gold and silver clouds. It always took her breath

 

 

 

Looking out to the sky beyond she recalled a story her Grandpa had told her long ago

 

about a planet out there that was all green and blue and she thought how awful that must

 

be that all those poor children would never get to see the prettiest sunrise or sunset on her

 

world bathed in shades of red everywhere you looked and just as she was about to pull

 

her little red wagon into the garage she heard her mother yell again from out the back

 

door, “what are you doing out there? I told you to hurry up or you'll be late for school.”

 

So rushing as fast as she could she got everything put away properly and running back

 

into the house grabbed a coat and her backpack and ran out the door for school.

 

She just couldn’t be late today, this was picture day and she and her mother had had her

 

nails done on all four hands, all three of her eyebrows clipped and the tentacles on her

 

beautifully elongated head waved just for the occasion. She was an absolute knockout

 

today and she knew it. “Look out boys, here comes Lucy," she said to the red sand filled

 

wind as she dashed down the road to school.
