Flash Fiction Friday #5- Winter's First

Woohoo! It's my fifth Flash Fiction Friday with the Flashers writing group. Enjoy! ;)

Flash Fiction Friday - Writing challenge based on a picture prompt. One picture to inspire one hundred words (no more, no less).

Winter's First

She knelt with head bowed in reverence. This could finally be her chance to prove herself; a way to set her apart. She trembled with excitement as sweat pooled at her feet, rushing in rivulets across the surface, icing over. Her sister was chosen last year. Gathering her courage to her breast, she gazed with yearning down at Earth below. At the “ahem,” she looked up and met her frosty gaze.

“Ready?” Winter's crisp voice asked.

She smiled.

“Go forth, Winter's First Snow.”

Unable to contain her joy, she spread her wings and dropped off the cloud.

Hot Damn, I loved this. What an imagination and so well written. My Dad and I would go out in the first snow of the year and "catch" snowflakes. Each one is so unique.
Thank you for inspiring some wonderful old memories.
