The Offering. Flash Fiction Friday #FFF

                             Welcome to the first Flasher Fiction Friday of 2014.

Friday Flashers have 100 words to tell a story based on an image. Here is my offering - enjoy x

                                                                The Offering

A shower of rose petals drifted to the altar. Corie stood back, examining her handiwork. Perfect. The breeze through the window fluttered across her warm skin, cooling her every nerve. Quick footsteps made their way to the room. Without hesitation. Corie climbed up and lay waiting, hoping she would be a fitting offering to the one she adored from afar. With shaking hands, she smoothed down her blonde hair, letting it tumble over the edge. Taking one last deep breath, Corie stared at the door. The footsteps stopped. The brass door handle twisted and the oak door opened slowly.

Don't forget to pop along and see what other Flashers have come up with. Each one has a slight different take on the image. I'm off to check out the others!
