Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
A Waking Dream
|Milla stared at the contents of the storage compartment. This was her inheritance, all that was left of her parents’ fortune after Dad’s dodgy partner had embezzled all the money: a desk, a tiffany-style table lamp, some chairs. The lamp was lovely; she decided to keep it and sell the rest.
Her fingers traced the delicate pattern on the shade, rubbing at a dull spot. She jumped when suddenly a cloud of smoke emerged and changed into a tall man.
“Am I dreaming this? Who are you?”
“Your servant. Your wishes are my command.”
A Genie! Milla’s eyes lit up.
(100 words) “Hope is a waking dream.” ― Aristotle
