This week’s photo prompt is provided by Yinglan. Thank you Yinglan!

Seo-Yun was born in a tiny village. The little girl with big dreams soon outgrew her home. They were no match for her rising star, so she left them for the big city that “discovered” her.

Famous, her fans followed her everywhere. Bathed in limelight, she capitalized on every opportunity to increase her popularity and her bank account. She staged and televised her life, from shoe shopping to lunch with friends. Her fans dictated every moment of her life.

Her sister called, telling her of mama’s illness. Seo-Yun raced to be by her side and her entourage raced with her. Umma was a simple woman, a private woman. When Seo-Yun arrived at the hospital, Umma refused to let her daughter’s fans see her. She pleaded, but Umma remained firm. Her daughter didn’t understand her mother’s resistance, and the moment passed.


Keep on writing.
