Flash Fiction: Chastity

First though, want a chance to win a $750 fuel card? Go here.

Okay, back on topic!

Wow, talk about a hard virtue to write about! Chastity is about so much more than what I thought. Check out this definition:


Abstaining from sexual conduct according to one's state in life; the practice of courtly love and romantic friendship. Cleanliness through cultivated good health and hygiene, and maintained by refraining from intoxicants. To be honest with oneself, one's family, one's friends, and to all of humanity. Embracing of moral wholesomeness and achieving purity of thought-through education and betterment. The ability to refrain from being distracted and influenced by hostility, temptation or corruption. (Matching vice: lust.)

Okay, the story...

Chastity

I envied Georgia.

To the chagrin of many girls, all the boys had crushes on her. Girls like me, who wouldn't think twice about making out behind the gym in order to get some attention. Georgia was careful not to even show cleavage. 

Some girls tried to spread rumours about her, but Georgia was so well liked that none of them stuck. The one about the burn scars covering her chest needed some damage control, however.

Looking at Georgia, I knew that if I could go back in time and make different choices to be more like her, I would.
