It was an annual occurrence and as usual, her mother had to persuade her to attend, especially this year.
She would much prefer to be dressed in her jimjams watching the nightlife from her rooftop apartment instead of tarting herself up to mingle with a load of stuffed shirts and the sycophantic friends of her father at a presentation dinner.
The rub was that once again they would be singing his praises for contributions to the community over the past twelve months, subtly evading how in the recessive climate, he vitiated natural habitats for low-cost housing whilst making a vast profit for himself.

She sighed and rose to thunderous applause to receive the monstrosity commissioned as the current Clay Pigeon trophy. It looked as battered as her psyche.

I noticed Recessive as an extra word so included it in my effort.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Oh wow. I rarely look at the image, just the words given. Nicely done take on the prompt as well. Very much a sign of the times.
