100 Word Challenge

 100 Word Challenge for grown ups – Week #159. The prompt this week:    …I need to remember…

The young woman  leaned in, “I’m so happy to meet you Mrs. Ridge,” she said, wrapping her soft, elegant hands around mine.

A light, floral scent followed her every move, reminding me of someone.  Anxiety niggled at the back of my mind. I  searched her lovely face for a hint. “My pleasure dear.”  …I need to remember.  “What was your name, again?”

She pulled her chair closer. “Most my friends call me Taffy.”

“How cute, nickname?”

“Yeah, since high school.”

“Did I know your mother?”

“Yes, very well,” she said, voice cracking. “Shall I tell you about her?”
