Scarlet (Flash Fic)

Some things just shouldn’t be red.

Like eyes or bees or light bulbs.

But her lips were perfect in their shiny scarlet hue. Not everyone agreed though, and I think one of the reasons she wore her shades opposite of blue was because she enjoyed seeing them glance from her lips to the ground with tightened shoulders and frozen faces. Sometimes she would paint on a layer of white before applying the colours of the sunset so that her lips seemed to emit the glow of the sun’s bending rays as they twisted and moved to create their own gorgeous art as she took the stage. She didn’t think that what she did was anything worth mention, but even those who thought her lips were too risqué stopped to listen as she sang and used her painted lips to colour a picture of wonder and dismay.
