For this weeks Flash! Friday we had to write a story about the following prompt:
Jeanne d’Arc, 1876. Painting by Eugène Thirion. Public Domain.
A Simple Misunderstanding
Have you ever crossed that line with a lie, where you know there’s no going back? I have.
It was Michael’s stag night. He’s a bit of a saint, so we made it a big one. I don’t know who had the bright idea of dressing up as girls, but of course I went for it. Shaving my legs was the worst, I have no idea why girls do that. Anyway, I guess I was a little too convincing cause a drunk french pillock got a little too frisky. I didn’t mean to hit him so hard, but down he went. Next thing you know all the girls in the place are calling me an inspiration, chanting about girl power. I tried to tell them my name was John, but they wouldn’t listen.
I can’t tell them now, they are going to be pretty mad when they find out. I’m just going to have to keep them in the d’arc!
