The Backup Plan – Flash Fiction

About to get married in a few weeks. Had everything planned, and in place. It wasn’t going to be a big wedding just family and close friends.

My maid of honor was a little pregnant, (okay a lot pregnant) with a chance of giving birth before our wedding day.

During the wedding rehearsal, I thought she looked a little piqued and asked if she was going to be okay. “No worries.”

Thank goodness I had a backup maid of honor, my sister in law Jackie as Shelley gave birth to a baby boy on the eve of our wedding.

 

This short story was written for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch. In 99 words (no more, no less)  write a short story using the term backup or back up. If you’d like to join us please do so. We have a lot of fun at the ranch. Hope to see you there!

  2. What good planning! Who knows – you might have had a different bridesmaid break a leg and be unable to come, so a backup’s actually a great idea!
