This is another character study, based on Lillie McFerrin's Five Sentence Fiction prompt "delicate":
Someone like him probably had a girlfriend, Elisabeth thought; he was so handsome, how could he not?
She frowned at the dress she was holding; soft and flowing, almost delicate with the thin shoulder straps, and definitely meant for warmer days than today.
If she wore it, maybe he would notice her on the train; she saw him every day after all, and maybe today he would smile at her - even though he probably wouldn't mean anything by it.
She put on the dress and frowned at the unfamiliar sight of herself in the mirror, hoping that this was what it took to get his attention.
She had never really stopped to consider why he mattered so much - but he did, this stranger on the train.
I rewrote it twice but I'm still not happy with it. In fact, I considered not even submitting anything, and instead just post this:
Interesting prompt this week.
Brain isn't working.
I wrote a haiku instead.
But I thought I might get some interesting feedback on the writing, regardless of what I think of it, so here it is :)
