Walk of Shame?

Coleen wrapped her arms tightly around the sequined bodice of her ball gown, even though it would do nothing to make her less visible to anyone who happened to be peering out their dorm window at seven AM.

Her head throbbing, her feet dragging like she were plodding through quicksand, she made her way across the campus green, intent on returning to the anonymity of her own room, without meeting up with anyone face to face.

How could she have let this happen- she had never slept with a guy she had only known for a few hours and always thought so little of girls she knew, who did.

There was no doubt she had done it, as she was awakened with her beautiful gown strung about her throat like a necklace, by a guy she only recognized as the one who offered her a drink from his flask, telling her it was fun, but she’d have to leave as his roommate would be home any minute…

What the hell was in that flask?

  1. Hangs head in shame…we’ve all been there…great six, great construction, great writing. Yeah you! And I’m sure it’s not autobiographical…


  2. I hope she has someone to talk to who will give her some wise counsel, and hopefully if her date put a drug in the drink, charges will be brought against him. Such a sad story, but well written.


  3. So many crime shows have that vile vial! And too many do not heed to not drink of mysterious potions!
    A life lesson that needs addressing…. and readdressing. (Sorry for the puns…Some mornings are like that.)
