December 17: Flash Fiction Challenge – Wing-Woman

Charlie’s Carrot Ranch flash fiction prompt:

December 17, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that features stilettos. Who will wear them and why? Go where the prompt leads!


“I have to wear those?”

Melissa nodded.

“No, really. Me? Wearing those death traps?”

Eliza gingerly picked up one of the sparkly high heeled stilettos and dangled it in front of her eyes. A pointed toe that was sure to pinch at her feet. And the heel. Dear God, the heel. Six inches of danger.

She cleared her throat. “Mel, do you want to walk into the club with style, or be shoved into Dan’s arms unceremoniously, as your hapless wing-woman ends up tripping, and taking you with her?”

“Well, at least he’ll notice me, that way,” Melissa smirked.

    LOL! I can see this happening in real life. Back in my day (LOL) it was platform shoes… I remember a few episodes where I fell off my shoes. Equally as funny as your story, Sis. ❤

    Ritu, my story is short. They may make a woman’s legs look sexy, but they had to have been invented by a man because of the torture of wearing of them. My wife and I marvel at these five inch stilettos and how anyone can walk in them, especially going down stairs. Keith
