This post is submitted to Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write a complete story with a beginning, middle and end in 100 words or less. My story follows the picture prompt below.
A little girl in a pink pinafore dress.
Her parents dreamed of nothing less.
Years spent in fruitless quest.
It was all worth while they said when pressed.
Time zipped by at record speed.
No, she was a special breed.
She never considered any wedding vows.
She said her lines, she took her bows.
A star was to be her fate.
Now she lives behind a rusted gate.
RDP Monday: Nuance
You think you know her
Could be your lover or not
All in her nuance

Your artist had a very distinctive style.
You would think that you deserve a much larger showcase.
A small picture frame for a lady with the famous smile.
In a place where legion of foreign tourists used to jostle for elbow space.
Sunset closes in
Countless cities count their dead
Another day gone by
woodland pools nearby
deep shades of emerald aqua
final days rest here
Wooden Planks Lead On
Beyond Green Trees Forever
My Soul Awaits Me
Buddha good and bad
Farewell the departing year
Spring brings us new hope
If not for the cat,
And the scarcity of cheese,
I could be content.

Cool babbling brooks here
Life lived without a concern
Death lurks near unseen
Footprint in white sand
Time has no meaning for me
Sara please come back
