#100WCGU – Wk85 – Photo prompt – 100 words – “Wishing”

16 Apr

Locked in darkness for perhaps centuries, it’s easy to lose time when there’s little reason to keep it. The outside world passed me by until the day hope returned.

I sensed a presence. Something very large was nearing my prison. Whatever it was, I sensed a bump. My world tilted. I felt myself falling… CRASH!

My spirit had been freed. I’d always promised to kiss whatever released me but had to rethink when reality dawned. I decided to grant it three wishes instead.

The first wish made, “I wish I didn’t break that urn.”

Locked in darkness for perhaps centuries…

    I love it. This would probably be me if I tried to take a picture in a museum. Though in my case I’m sure there wouldn’t be a genie, only an angry security guard.

      Thanks for the comment.

      Luckily most museums don’t tend to display fragile items on pedestals. 🙂

    Wow, this is such a creative take on the prompt! And superbly written!

    I was so swamped with work last week — and also involved in the National Poetry Month poem challenges — that I didn’t even have time to look at this prompt, but I’m determined to find time to write a story based on it even though the links are closed. I just think it’s too good to pass up.

    P.S. I do love your header.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I try to look at prompts in odd directions while keeping them G rated in case students find this blog. 🙂
