My Dream is Yours
Asquith
1973

Another romantic tale for your Friday Fiction. Flip (yes, that is her name-short for “Phillipa”) grew up as an orphan and doesn’t seem to have a pedigree that one would call “impressive.” Michael, Flip’s intended, wants to make a good impression. From the text, Michael seems to be more worried about impressing his mother than his girlfriend. (Flip, honey, this is a giant red flag!)

Michael takes Flip home to meet the family. Naturally, the matriarch seems less than impressed with Flip’s humble background and her career as a fashion model. A family friend is also in attendance, and of course he absolutely dislikes her career choice. Robert, a doctor, dismisses her lifestyle and career asĀ  frivolous. You guessed it, he ends up as “the one.” Poor Flip.

  1. Poor Flip. I’d have a pissy look on my face too if someone held a cigarette that close to it.
