Lucky Rain – Friday Fictioneers

Lucky, rain on your wedding day.

Rosie would clobber the next auntie who said that.  All the planning; all that money. A year’s work for one day.

Of course, ‘best laid plans’…

First the flowers. Alison freaked at the lilies, screaming at Rosie, ‘Your friend knows they make my eyes swell. We should’ve used a proper florist!’

Then, Doug stepped on the lace train. Alison’s colour drained and matched her dress. Rosie’s repair wasn’t visible from a distance.

The car, The Fiancé’s choice – a tiny back seat. A sea of  meringue swallowed Alison.

Groom absconded.

No luck there, either. organises the successful Friday Fictioneers. Authors write a piece of 100 word fiction on a photo prompt and exchange comments on their work. Thank you Rochelle for keeping this group active.

    It rained on my wedding day. And we freezed our asses off. But it was a much happier occasion than this seems. Thanks for sharing.

    All those mishaps and then left at the altar. Sounds like a lucky escape.

  7. Arrrrgh! I agree with the other commenters; there is some really good luck here, in that the groom is a complete a** and she is well rid of him!

    I think the rain brought her luck. Who would want such a jerk, good thing she’s rid of him. Fun story.

    Hmm… maybe it was lucky. 🙂 I like the image of “a sea of meringue.”

  10. Dear Lindy,

    I suspect it wasn’t just the rain and the groom is obviously a jerk. Cute story.



  11. Every mishap could have been toleerated if there was love …looks like there was none in this wedding. Nicely done.
