The Wish

Post by JSWriter »

She closed her eyes, blew out the candles.
Nothing happened! Everyone still stood around laughing and clapping like idiots.
Her shoes lifted a mere inch off the grass, then six, then a whole foot.
She grinned as everyone else gasped.
“I’m flying!” She cried out just in case any failed to notice her.
A foot became a yard.
“Honey! Come down!”
A yard became four. Mom and Dad looked so small all of a sudden.
Realization clicked into place. Her wish was coming true.
They soon lost her in the clouds, and eventually even her screams faded away to nothing.

Great! The horror of being untethered and drifting into nothingness is such a gut punch.
Rawr! 🦖🙊
