Learning to Walk (flash fiction)

Learning to Walk

Briana selected the pair of red stilettos and began putting them on in store.

“Excuse me, um, miss, are you sure want to try those on?” the store assistant asked frowning at her.

“Yes I have to learn how to walk in heels at some point.” Briana replied.

She stood up and tried to take a step. She swayed, and eventually began to topple over, the store assistant managing to break her fall.

“Again, are you really sure you wouldn’t prefer some flats?”

“A girl’s gotta try.” Briana responded as she stood up again and took one more step.

  1. Love it, Joanne
    And I think back… I used to go clubbing in four & half inch stilettos, dance all night, and (having drunk my taxi fare) then walk the five miles home… all in those shoes. And they were dead-handy when I dated a guy who was 6’6″ (I’m only 5’4″) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
