Green (Five Minute Friday)

All around was green: teal, emerald, lime, sea green, glinting and shimmering. It was more dresses than she had ever seen before, racks and racks of them extending into the distance. A few feet away they shifted to blues: sapphire, sky blue, powder blue, midnight blue. It even smelled of fabric, overlaid with perfume and sanitation chemicals. It wasn’t an entirely pleasant combination.

“Can I help you find something?” The woman who approached was wearing a red dress; it clashed with the greens and blues behind her.

“I’m looking for Tasha.”

The clerk’s face shifted. “She’s in the back. Maybe you should come in that way next time.”

Pria just shrugged as she brushed past the other woman, even as her face and neck prickled with uncomfortable heat. Yes, she should have, but, as much as she despised the fake facade out here, she hated the dank, stinking back rooms even more.


Today was a fiction day. It’s not from anything I’m writing, but such a visual prompt just sparked something. It’s an odd bit of scene, so thanks for reading!

One thought on “Green (Five Minute Friday)”

  1. I enjoyed reading your snippet of fiction. What you describe reminds me of a store I used to enjoy shopping at in Texas. I think it was called Violet. They had all the clothes arranged by color – I’m sure the salespeople wondered why an older woman like me came in. I could have told them, if they had asked, that I was enjoying the colors… I’m your neighbor at FMF today – I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
