Christmas Violin

The microfiction below is not my usually fare, however, the prompt generator gave me the challenge so I went with it.

It had to be under 50 words, be romantic, seasonal, contain “We can fix this”, and have an athlete in it.  Total time spent was around 30 minutes from prompt generation to story completion:

“We can fix this.” The school’s star quarterback spoke gently, holding the girl’s violin in his hands as she slowly got up from the floor.

Her large brown eyes were still filled with tears, “But the Christmas concert is tonight.”

He held her close, “Then we’ll figure something out.”
