This week at Friday Fictioneers, Rochelle has chosen the above image © J Hardy Carroll, as our 100-word writing prompt.
The popular kids hung out at Rockin’ Roger’s: football players, cheerleaders — all the pretty people. Rhonda was none of the above and didn’t frequent Rockin’ Roger’s. Even if she were one of the popular kids, she wouldn’t have gone. She saw those kids all day at school. Who wants to hang out with them afterward? A little pretty went a long way in Rhonda’s opinion.
The pretty people loved Rockin’ Roger, always cracking jokes, laughing and friendly. They thought he was the ‘cat’s ass.’
They didn’t know Rhonda’s stepfather (the cat’s asshole) like she did.
She hid the bruises well.
