Five-Sentence Fiction: The Red Lipstick


He entered the house full of a dozen women and faked a smile. They kept staring at him and then they looked at her.

She was embarrassed and furious at the same time. He opted for a jeans and a tee instead of the formals she had instructed him to wear, but at least, he could have wiped off the red lipstick, especially when she had told him earlier that she would be inviting her friends over.

She had told them that he was an investment banker, but he loved being a clown and wearing that red lipstick!
