Cinderella – a Sangria princess


This post is in response to the Friday fictioneer challenge.

She accepted the sangria glass twirling it slowly between her fingers. The fruits spun causing ripples in the wine based liquid. She sniffed the cinnamon scent and closed her eyes, reliving those last days in Portugal – that artist – the laughter- love- sadness of a trip home to reality.

Curiousity and a heady schoolgirl like crush drew her today to the exhibit in her home town. She’d imagined this day, rehearsing conversations. She wasn’t foolish enough to imagine fairy tales come true. Her face looked back at her from a painting titled “Cinderella”. She knew there’d be no slipper left behind this time.

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  3. Dear Macs,

    “Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if you’re young at heart…” I couldn’t help but play that song in my head. Very nicely done. Left me with a smile.



  4. Bittersweet. Very well done 🙂

  5. Thanks Tinkerbelle. It’s funny how in life we can build up memories to what we think we want them to be, only to burst their bubble ourselves 🙂
