Flash Fiction Friday "Perfection"

It is Friday, the day most everyone looks forward to, the end of a long work week for some. For others it is the day to let our imagination have a quick little romp in the world of Flash Fiction Friday. Today is even more special cause it is Friday the 13th and in my family that is a lucky day. :)


Anna’s arm tingled with pins and needles.  Holding this pose for so long had put the poor appendage to sleep.
“Are we almost done, Jack?”  She asked while beginning to feel a cramp start in her leg.
“A few more shots Sweety, then you can go.  It just isn’t perfect yet.”  Her photographer answered while snapping picture after picture.
Anna detested the word “perfect” with a passion.  After spending her whole life trying to attain perfection for everyone around her, she had realized that is was an impossible feat.  However for this kind of money she could pretend it existed.

I hope you enjoyed my little Flash about the power of money. Please leave me a comment of what you thought, I love to know how my words do or don't effect someone.
Make sure you check out my fellow Flashers. They are an awesome group of talented writers and it is always a treat to see how each of us has "viewed" the same picture. Click on the link above for a glimpse of their special talent. Have an awesome Weekend everyone!

Great Flasher honey. Sometimes demands of "Perfection" can be wearing and upsetting. For who knows what perfection is? The beautiful Anna is human and appealing to many. She knows no amount of money can turn her into something she's not. That girl has both brains and beauty. Well done.

Excellent flash sweets :) I hate the word perfect too. Perfection doesn't exist.

Wow, Michelle. This was emotionally beautiful. What a great statement to make in so few words.

Loved this post. Who knows what "perfection" is. I think we're all versions of perfection. Great flash.

Davee said...

Very astute perception of "perfect" with this post. Great FFF!

Wonderful FFF.

There are "shades" of perfection, but it's just an illusion. This post, however, is not. Perfect! Loved it:) xo

Hmm I think ultimately if she is in it for the money she needs to quit. We all need money but we need to be happy with ourselves first.
Very thought provoking post.

Perfection, like beauty and truth ies in the eye of the beholder. I like it. Good POV and right amount of attitude. Good job.

Ah the never ending pursuit of perfection - what a pipe dream. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. When I first saw this picture, I thought - "Oh My Gawd, what a beautiful woman."

Not perfect of course, but beautiful. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, but mostly it comes from within. Michelle, I think you have captured something quite meaningful in your FFF post this week, very well done.
