Just Desserts

Annie grabbed another handful of cake, still chewing the last. Her eyes were lost in a veil of smudged mascara, and endless replays of that morning.

Her stunning meringue dress was now up passed her ears as she sat crossed legged on her best friend’s floor.

Jen sat opposite her, working her way through the silver linings.

“At least you found out before you said I do”

Yeah. A little sooner would have been nice though.”

Jen smiled. “At least you went with my idea of the tree slice seats.”

Annie smiled a wide cake filled smile. “They’re heavy those.”

  1. Dear Anna,

    I’m not sure what happened with the heavy seats unless she clobbered the faithless groom who wasn’t. However the image of her sitting on the floor, smudged mascara and a mouthful of cake said it all. Well done.

  2. Cry now or cry for years after. At least now, there is cake and a friend!
    Loved the descriptions in this. And knowing they are heavy means she put them (or at least one of them) to good use!
