Out of the Blue

Wow, we’re already into the second Friday of 2016! And that means it’s time for another Friday Fictioneers, our weekly writing prompt provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s photo is provided by Melanie Greenwood.

I decided to take a historical take on this particular prompt. Enjoy!

Out of the Blue

It was a typical day at work – busy. There were three new immigrant families to place, a meeting with the Syrian Mother’s Club and a girls basketball practice later that afternoon.

She had just pulled out her paperwork when Margaret poked her head inside the door. “Amelia, you’ve got a call.”

“I’m too busy to answer just now,” she said, but Margaret was insistent.

“Sounded important.”

“Alright, I’m coming.” Muttering about pranks, Amelia answered the phone.

Her expression changed from irritation to wonder as the man asked, “How would you like to be the first woman to fly the Atlantic?”
