I have exciting news to share: my short story "How My Parents Fell in Love" won third place in The Newport Review flash fiction contest!
Here's the beginning:
My mother walked out of a grocery store. She wore a red dress and her hair was permed, the way it looks in the photo albums. My father drove up in a car, a fast car, silver, a car that goes vroom vroom. He did not know her yet. She was a pretty woman in a red dress with ruffles at the hem. He rolled down the window. He leaned out and smiled at her and said, “Hubba, hubba!”
They fell in love and lived happily ever after.
