Five Sentence Fiction: Scarlet

Word prompt: Scarlet

As she entered the room she felt the sudden weight of all eyes on her, the long stares….then the whispers started.

She made her way to the back of the hall and took a seat…this was going to be one very long neighbourhood meeting.

‘ It’s as if she lives up there in the clouds, unaware of the damage she had caused that family’

Overhearing this she smiled and bit her tongue, resisting the urge to yell in the direction of those gossiping ‘ You know it takes two to tango! ‘

And yes, she thought to herself, she did live with her head in the clouds, it was far more pleasant than residing in a town where her name had been dragged through the mud.

    Just the right note of defiance for a scarlet lady – loved it.

    As said above, just the right amount of defiance and also pride. I liked this a lot.
