Camilla was the only girl who hadn’t been asked to the Senior Prom. Deciding to skip it entirely, she took solace in knowing she would soon be away from the cruel boys and girls of High School. Finally, her intellect would matter more than her girth.
A day before Prom, her younger sister Amelia, bounded home in glee. The quarterback of their football team had asked her to accompany him when his date fell ill. As Amelia was merely a Sophomore, she couldn’t believe her luck- she would be the Prom King’s date!
In a frenzy, she scoured her wardrobe, turning to her sister’s when she found nothing suitable.
Camilla’s stunning emerald green silk dress, custom-made for her 16th birthday (where not a single invitee had shown up) would make the perfect Prom dress. Amelia’s silent plea to borrow it was granted and Camilla even helped her size it down.
When Josh arrived at 7 p.m., Amelia stood waiting in her green resplendence. However, when she saw a solitary tear escape Camilla’s eye, she hugged Josh and excused herself from being his date.
This momentous occasion would be celebrated at home and there would be two Prom Queens.

Sisterhood. The world and it’s desires don’t really have a chance at relationships so serene. I could totally relate to it as have a younger sister. Thanks for writing in, Noor. 🙂
My pleasure 😃
Sisterhood is indeed a special bond
I hope the sisters have a good prom night together.
Such a cute little story with a twist. Though I don’t have a sister but I have seen such beautiful bonds between siblings.
I don’t have a sister either, but I do have a brother and it is a strong and unique bond 😊

Wow, such an interesting story. Would read the whole setup soon. Would love to know from where Camalia and Amelia started.
Thanks! It was meant to be micro-fiction so there won’t be anything more from them 😊
That was such a cool prompt. Loved it so much. Can’t wait to read more from your end.
This short story talks about the sibling relationship. I loved the way you twisted the story. It should be called sisters before misters.
Ah! Isn’t that what sisters are for? Always supportive.
Sister love won over a prom date. Did not see that coming and loved how you wrapped up this tale.
Glad you liked it 😊
Amazing, you have great way of story telling. Sibling love is unspoken and special.
