While at a roaring jamboree…

The 1920s era, a.k.a. “The Roaring 20s”, always comes in and out of vogue. And flappers of that era, as well as the parties and jamborees they attended, are nearly always portrayed as glamorous in fiction. The flapper era was an era of supposed prosperity that always seems to have a cloud hanging over it, however… a cloud of smoke and illegal booze, perhaps? Or is it a cloud of something else?

Today’s writing prompt is based on a jamboree during the flapper era. See the details for the writing prompt below, as well as my completed version of this prompt titled, A Sweet Stench of an Affair.
