TLT: Recurring Nightmare

Her nightmare was always the same. The table was set and decorated, but something about the scene felt wrong… Only the sound of the doorbell caused realisation to strike – Mother was coming to dinner, and the tablecloths hadn’t been ironed!

This post is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales challenge. This week’s photo prompt was provided by Annie Spratt.

    • I only noticed it myself when I was reading someone else’s post. Only the bottom part of the picture was visible on my screen, and it pretty much leapt out at me! Thanks for reading Jeanne. 🙂


      • A rebel I see, well to be really honest it depends on who is coming for dinner, if it was someone I needed to impress then maybe I would get the old iron out, if it were family they know me, it’s all about the food only!


  1. I like to think that perhaps she has not had a visit from her mother since she set up housekeeping for herself and was on edge about getting everything perfect for her mother’s first impression! It’s amazing how your nerves can affect your body.Hopefully, her mother will be very pleased with whatever her daughter has chosen to do in preparing for her visit. Great story with a lot of possibilities for reasons of her nightmares. 🙂
