Five Sentence Fiction : Blush

Word Prompt: Blush


She stared at the faces, all familiar to her, sitting in chairs arranged in a circle.

She loved the first Tuesday of the month, when the members of her book club met to discuss, critique and dissect one of Jane Austen’s novels.

The month’s pick- Pride and Prejudice, her absolute favourite and she had been bestowed the greatest of honours…opening this months meeting with her insight into what she regarded as Austen’s finest work.

She rose from her chair and held her notes steady in her hand…she had been working all month on her speech…but with the task now at hand…what presented itself on the page seemed irrelevant.

Her opening address ‘I just LOVE Mr Darcy’ she gushed, blushing and giggling like a school girl.
