Weekend Writing Prompt — Silhouette

9b3ea54b-1f96-45e2-b780-612184fc439eI see your silhouette against the window. You look so sophisticated with your cigarette in its long holder and your glass of champagne. You excude glamour and confidence. You stand so tall, straight, and self-assured. Surely you are a goddess.

Dare I, a mere mortal man, approach you? Shall I ask your name? Take your hand? Kiss your lips?

No. You probably have cigarette breath.

(Exactly 65 words)

    Great ending. I wonder, do they still even make those cigarette holders anymore? My great grandma always had one; she was quite the lady.
