A Stain Transformed :: CR99 220919

CR99 Muddy Tires

“Yo babe! What’s this? It was in your old dresser”

“Oh that. It’s from the night some jerk drove through an oily, muddy puddle and sprayed me outside my prom.”

“You – may have mentioned this.”

“I had mud and road grit in my hair, down my cleavage. The dress was ruined. I saved it to recall my hatred and anger.

“But – years passed: college, first jobs, a war, an unplanned child and a marriage – all happened. That dress transformed from an icon of hatred into one of blessing when you, that same jerk, transformed into my husband.”

Inspired by Charli Mill’s Carrot Ranch, #99WordStories
In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about; “Muddy Tires”

    1. Hahah Roberta.
      When it comes to proms, I’m a chaos magnet it seems.
      The one girl I asked to my own turned me down flat.
      Somehow I managed to be asked to 7 others.
      One father asked me to take his daughter and that turned into a whole story that – well, can I just offer you the story?

      I’m scared to death of them now.

      You tempt me to expand this story though. Hmm.

    1. Hahahah Kirstin.
      Why am I not surprised that you would love this micro-story. The transformation of this guy had to be quite a stretch and I bet any story that explored that would be compelling. I’m so glad you both read and enjoyed it.


    1. Hi KL.
      I thought the image of a gal whose prom was ruined like this then ending up married to him was a huge transformation.
      Perhaps you mean how it was snuck in with the last few words 😃
      Thank for giving it a read 📚
