Friday Flash: Tough

Another drabble for Friday flash! It was inspired by this photo from wiki commons.

It was magnificent, the blacks, the golds, the  body shape. The first really pretty dual car! She ventured a hand out and rubbed the cold, polished surface.

Yellow lights outlined the delicate wings and she grinned in delight.

Her father walked up behind her. “You like, baby button?”

She giggled. “It’s gorgeous. Can I have one?”

He snorted. “When you win the lottery. In the meantime . . .” He draped an arm over her shoulder and tugged her across the field to a curvy black car. “This is what you get.”

She frowned at it. “It doesn’t fly.”

“Tough.”
