Thanks to Rachel for our word prompt today:
The Dress had cost her parents an arm and a leg, but it would dazzle everyone when she made her entrance.
She always had to have the best, be the best, act the best.
In truth, she had delusions of grandeur, but that didn’t stop her acting the part.
Like moths to a flame, she had a circle of sycophantic friends, all trying to jump on her bandwagon, but she chose them to make herself look good, better in fact, than the rest. She no more cared for them as they did her.
As things turned out, she did dazzle everyone, but not quite the way she intended as the Dress was completely redundant and unnecessary.
As she entered the Prom hall, her fellow students caught every dazzling movement as her white lacy underwear glowed in the unexpected ultra-violet light.
