Keeping the dream alive. (99-word Flash Fiction Contest entry)
The harsh neon lights coated her skin as she gyrated against the pole. Her mind was somewhere else, thinking of more pleasant things than shoving her naked breasts in a customer's face for a couple of bucks. Most often, she thought of Broadway, and her dream of performing in one of those big, famous stage productions.

Such dreams were also a reminder of just how far away she was, dancing at a Vegas gentlemen's club where the clients were usually anything but.

After the show, she performed her nightly ritual, scouring the papers for auditions... keeping her dream alive.
