Protege

She hurried down the tunnel-like hallway, oblivious to the clean lines of its modern design. A particular memory nagged.

“Your work has a certain neophyte appeal,” he had told her, “But it’s nothing special.”

He had wanted her to keep studying with him, but she knew better. He just wanted her money and her body. The old misogynist didn’t believe a woman could be a serious artist.

Well, she showed him. A few more steps and she would be in the gallery surrounded by her paintings and the fans who had come from all over the city to meet her.

I wonder whether it the way boys are raised that gives them a misogynist character happy to bully all their lives. Having a brother and many male cousins to push me around I tended to opt for a different attitude and was very pleased to have friends that were girls to treat as equals...lucky me!

Maybe my curiosity but i wonder what happened before she went down that tunnel - if she emerged not just as an artist but as the one in control.. so very good to read your work again
