Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by the most talented Fictioneer, Sandra Crook.

She loved that dress.
I, on the other hand, hated it.
She said it made her feel like a woman again.
It certainly made her look like one.
Rather too much, I thought.
She was still young, she argued.
She was married, I said, with two young children.
It’s just a bit of fun, she laughed.
I didn’t mind her enjoying herself, but I thought it was inappropriate.
She wore it for her ‘girls night out’.
The one she never came back from.
We still don’t know what happened to her.
But they found her dress, discarded in a field.
