Inside the Mind of Isadora

Friday Fictioneers – Sashay to Trouble


The moon filtered through the starless clouded sky.

She could see tiny white lights shining on the patio. By midnight, they’d be drunk.
It was the perfect night to go.

Silk stockings stretched over her shapely legs and thighs. A black leather skirt accented her curvaceous hips. The spiky heels, she’d picked up at a yard sale, completed her outfit. She felt as fiery as a hot chili pepper.

A car pulled up beside her.

“Looking for some fun?”

“No …” “I’m near my destination.”

“Think so?”

“I’ve got other plans for you, cupcake.”

Tearfully, “I’m grounded. Right Mom?”

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  4. Ha, ha. Good for Mom. She’s no doubt been keeping an eye on her. Mom realizes the danger while her teen doesn’t as yet. Good writing, Isadora. 🙂 — Suzanne

    • A high praise from you, dear Gilly. Thank you. 😊 When I’m writing I try to feel what I would feel in the same situation.
      This is a fiction story but there is a bit of reality as I had 3 daughters and had to be vigilant at all times. 😎


  10. A fine piece of writing, creative and full of images.

  12. Delightful. The third paragraph is gorgeous!
    (“Tearfully.” “I’m grounded.” “Right Mom?” this could be reworked to Tearfully, “I’m grounded. Right, Mom?” Otherwise, it’s a bit jumpy and ‘tearfully’ doesn’t need quotation marks. Hope this comment doesn’t offend.)
