Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Spreading her wings
“Will you be writing to Mark?” asked Angela’s mother, Maureen, as they waited together for the Cambridge train.
Angela smiled. “No, probably not”, she said.
“He’s such a nice young man.”
“You sound as though you fancy him, Ma!”
“Good looking, well off, what’s not to like?”
“Uni’s a new beginning; I’m going to spread my wings, see how far I can go.”
Maureen raised her eyebrows.
“I expect he’ll get over it, Ma,” said Angela.
The train was pulling into the station. Maureen hugged Angela tightly. Her eyes were moist.
“Go and do brilliantly, lovely daughter,” she whispered, fiercely.
