just a little butterfly

A to Z challenge, theme: anatomy, day 1: A
Flash fiction, 100 words

Saturday arrived and Jana still hadn’t changed her mind. 

After coffee in bed, she got up and dressed. Jeans and a t-shirt. She headed out to the old truck.

Parking a few blocks away, she walked, finally arriving at a dark facade that barely took up any space among the other businesses.

Almost surprised at herself, Jana opened the door without hesitation.

The tattooist took his time, even though it was just a small work on her ankle. A butterfly.

Jana stepped back onto the street feeling strangely buoyant, a feeling she hadn’t had for a very long time.
