Not Like a Flower

Writing Challenge: July 14, 2018

Prompt: “She wasn’t fragile like a flower. She was fragile like a bomb.”

She was fragile, but not a porcelain, not like glass. You weren’t afraid of breaking her. You weren’t afraid of crushing her or causing her to shatter. No. She wasn’t fragile in that way. She wasn’t fragile like a flower.

She was fragile like a bomb.

She wasn’t one to bruise- she was one to explode. She came with her own caution sign, but no safety manual. You never knew what would set her off, but you knew to be careful not to light a fuse
