An error of judgement – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction.  Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group.  It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

An error of judgement

The clash of cymbals heralded the arrival of the clowns who somersaulted to the centre of the room. Their leader raised a glass to toast the newlyweds.  The clowns cheered and leapt onto each other’s shoulders.  With a whoop, the topmost of them dived head first into the piano.

 Silence from half the room punctuated by raucous laughter from her family and friends.

Her new husband couldn’t hide his displeasure in time to meet her glance. The stony faces of his mother and father met her eyes.  It was suddenly very clear to her.  She had made a terrible mistake.
