Tongue in cheek

With Julia -, the mighty fine host of the wonder that is the "100 word challenge" - on her travels in New York, this weeks (5 word) prompt is rather fitting:-

"LIBERTY  EMPIRE  APPLE  YELLOW  ENORMOUS"
I contemplated these words with iconic images of New York in my mind...the elegant sophistication of the Manhattan brownstone houses...the bright yellow taxis...the earthiness of the Bronx...the grandeur of Brooklyn Bridge  And then I dismissed all of those images and wrote these 100 (toungue-in-cheek) words instead....

_______________________________________________________
Put simply, Liberty loved it at Empire.  It was the best club in town.  It was enormous.  And that dance floor…bright zingy yellow and deep apple green flashing squares that seemed to bounce as you stepped on to them.
A couple (of gallons) of mojitos and the world of Empire was her oyster. 

All eyes would be on her.  Hands in the air, hips rotating, mouthing the words to her favourite dance ‘toons’ - how would anyone be able to resist her?

She slithered into her new dress, popped on her seven inch heels and stepped out into the night.

    1. Thank you :) It's tricky sometimes trying to come up with something original so it's fun to play around with different styles
