It’s what you see…

It was the prettiest ferriswheel I’d ever seen. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.

The colours were mesmerizing, and while watching it, my breathing became easy again after so many years of painful gasps. The pain in my decrepit bones seemed to have vanished completely.

I needed to get on that thing. My sympathetic grandson helped me get to the fair. Up I went, around and around until I passed out.

I woke up in a beautiful garden, feeling young and pain-free.

“You recognized our invitation,” a delicate, crowned woman said. “I’m Mab. Welcome to the land of magic.”

(100 words)

I pledge

  1. Oo, I was hoping it was magical from the second line, and it was! Now that you mention it, it does resemble an otherworldly invitation to a happier place. Thanks for the whimsy and the happy ending: it’s just what I need this week. (whew, back to work…)

    1. Thank you! About the grandson… that could be an entire story of its own, come to think of it. 🙂 Imagine getting your grandma on a ferris wheel, and then she just disappears. What do you do? Maybe she left her body behind, maybe she sends a magical message …
