#Flashfictionchallenge – The red devil

Charli Mills over at Carrot Ranch Literary Community wrote a wonderful post on performance this week. Her prompt for her weekly flash fiction challenge is performance. You can join in the challenge here: https://carrotranch.com/2017/12/07/december-7-flash-fiction-challenge/

The red devil

The red devil danced with abandon, and the little girl watched, her attention riveted on the stage. The dancer wore red tights and a red leotard. She had a pointed tail and horns on her head. She even had red ballet shoes. The little girl stood there in her own costume; she was dressed up as a ladybird; and dreamed of being a red devil. She dreamed of dancing like that, all alone on the stage, a wild and uninhibited dance. This memory remained with her as she traveled her chosen path. She never got her own devil outfit.

  1. Robbie a while ago you said you were thinking of writing a full length adult novel. The past couple of posts seemed to have had a certain autobiographical quality… and I also remember your stories of growing up in the UK (based on your mum?) I for one would love to see you do a full length work exploring all these elements.
