Fallen Pride

by Anne Deborah Taylor
Originally published by on 17/03/2018

Chantelle looked in the mirror, admiring her face. No wrinkles around her eyes and her lips were full, even when she smiled. It had been worth every moment of agony under the surgeon’s knife.

It was her 60th birthday party and the guests were downstairs. Her entrance would be nothing if not dramatic.

Taking the stairs and looking at the admiring faces below her, Chantelle failed to notice the glass marble left there by her grandson. Only when she slipped the full length of the staircase did it occur to her this wasn’t the grand entrance she had in mind.
