A House with a Pool
“This house has a lovely outdoor pool,” said the woman dressed in a cardboard brown suit as she led Alice outside.
Alice looked at the zomp-colored water in the pool. She was suddenly transported to her 16th birthday. The one where her breast fell into the cake when she was blowing out the candles and she was so embarrassed because she’d invited that boy she’d always had a crush on. The same boy she had sex with for the first time a year later at this very pool.
“I’ll take it.” Alice didn’t take her eyes off the water.

April 27, 2016 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write on the theme of showing someone around a property. Who’s showing whom, and how do they feel about it? Is it a country house, a garden shed or something in between? Is it even a building or is it a piece of land or a virtual property like website or blog? Don’t let your imagination be constrained by four walls.
