Thanks for stopping by for a story! This is a second go at this week’s Friday Fictioneers flash fiction writing prompt for 28 February 2020. I love being in and going to plays, and another inspiration for a good share came to me.
The Photo Prompt

For my visually impaired guests, this photo shows a stage production with a number of performers.
My love of theater inspired me. When in the seats, I imagine what role I would want to play. My parents were performers, and I put in my licks quite a bit in my younger days as well. I even scored a role in a community theater production of Once Upon a Mattress in the 90s. Although I’m not in plays at the moment, I perform in different ways.
The Story: The Role I want
Word Count: 100 Words
As a girl, whenever I went to the theater, I imagined what part I wanted. I still do this.
Stopping myself singing along, I saw the Broadway touring company of Les Miserable in the ‘80s. I wanted to play Eponine who was so much more interesting than Cosette. Not the lead, she wasn’t automatically expected to be thin. Plus, I had the pipes, acting and dancing ability for it.
Watching the 2012 movie with my friend, I realized the only significant age-appropriate female role left for me was the innkeeper’s wife, Mrs. Thenardier.
That’s okay. I like her part too.
Thank you for reading!
Cheers to your B.L.I.S.S.-FULL Life+-!!
