Genre Shorties Prompt -- Week 121
You are in the forest and the path diverges. You are being chased by a Forest Beast who WILL eat you, no exceptions, with a *belch* afterward.
You MUST choose between the east path, down which lurks a relentless perfume salesgirl, and the west path, where you will face a desperate car salesman.
Which direction do you go? Tell me alllll about it (in no more than 100 words, of course).
Your story may be serious or lighthearted or as silly as you like so long as it is 100 or fewer words.
Post your stories to Genre Shorties.
Please read other folks' entries!
This is a moderated group and only articles posted for the prompts are accepted.

Bones of fellow Gather Shortie Writers lay scattered about the forest trail. All before me gone to the salivating jaws of that primeval beast, and critic, stalking prompts, challenges and posts scattered along the ground like leaves of fall.
I smell the feted odor of literary death satiating a voluminous appetite.
The pathway forks, the Facebook braying of a used car salesman awaits the branch to the west. The route to the east holds the heavy perfume odor of a Macy’s cosmetic girl lurking behind a polyester tree, atomizer in hand.
I opt for the fangs of rejection, oblivion.
