"you were a cute kid"

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2021

And I was, wide buck-toothed grin framed by blue dungarees and dollar-store stickers. Freckled cheeks round with joy, eyes squinting under summer sun. Was it summer? My fingers trace the dusty curl of my hair, the photo grainy under the glare of modern technology and teenage pessimism.
