99 Word Flash: A New Dawn

On June 15, 2017 (link here), Charli Mills (@Charli_Mills) prompted us thus:

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that symbolically, mythically, mystically, or realistically involves dawn, as a noun or verb. Write about the dawn of time or the time of dawn, or the dawn of an idea. As always, go where the prompt leads.

Short-term and long-term goals peppered a vanity mirror in her bedroom. The very idea of vanity forced her swollen lips to slightly curl upward.

Hanging as suspended hopes in the swirling dried ink, she located the short-term square-reminder, dated April 22, 2017, plucked it from the mirror, and cupped it in her hands.

“Win pro MMA debut.”

A lost stare soon found direction when it dawned on her: flip the post-it over! On the back, a ‘break in case of emergency’ reminder revealed how to reset her winning mindset:

“Get back to the gym.”
