Here is the Priorhouse submission:
Title: Lemon Queens
Lydia and June carried in numerous bags and crates with workshop supplies.
Catching their breathe, they placed the heavy items down and began setting up:
June Spread out a yellow table cloth across the round table in the corner.
Lydia spread out six dozen sliced lemons.
The workshop would have their speciality “lemon-themed” group activity.
There would be a taste test to experiment with sour.
Lemons would be added to water to alkalize the body and provide Vitamin C.
Standing back, they dimmed the lights and smiled.
The Lemon Queens would strike again.

And just for fun – here are mock images of Lydia and June (these are street shots I took in July)
I have enjoyed reading the various entries for this lemon queens #flashfiction challenge.
I was not sure what angle I wanted to take for my fiction. Then…
I imagined two ladies who helped coordinate workshops – and they also loved lemon so much that it became their trademark- they were noted for always hosting with lemons – hence – they were called the “lemon queens”
Also, “lemons” have been on my mind because in August, I was reminded (again) about how wonderful lemons are for the human body
Plain lemon water offers so many perks. Also, lemon and baking soda (fresh baking soda) added to a glass of water can balance the body’s Ph and calm digestion. It can also help restore the body if not feeling well (try it and see). ((And shhhh, but a little lemon juice added to a plain water enema – using a small disposable bottle – can really offer some positive health benefits for the body – but shhhh – that is off the record – because this is a flash fiction blog post – and we have to watch all this enema talk – hahahah))
So, have you enjoyed lemons lately?
