What! Why Me!

The Daily Word Prompt

My short story hopefully has a beginning, middle and ending!

++++

One fine day, set on minding my own business, I set out for a long walk in the park. A little dog ran up to me, jumping, growling showing his teeth but did not bark. The incident startled me and took me to bounce back, but then the pup started to cower at my feet. I petted him to give him confidence hoping he would perceive my natural love of animals. Strange as it sounds, the doggy dropped from its mouth what appeared to be a wallet packed with money. I saw an angry woman with a baleful voice running toward me, yelling, “thief, thief.” 

Where is Perry Mason when I need him? I thought.

Very Short six sentence story

The prompt word is “SHELTER”

Just a simple story, I notice lately I enjoy writing poems, short stories, and photo prompts here is one short story for Girlie on the edge.

Waking and thinking about my day off, what should I do today? First, I need that cup of coffee! As she walked around the room, getting her thoughts together, waiting for that cup of coffee, she wondered if the world was still out there, turning on the news to a strange noise; din din din din din din … & words flashing across the screen. 

B R E A K I N G N E W S….  A Voice … Everyone Shelter in Place.  

What Now, she screamed as details from the news rung out, “a new variant just discovered.”  

She went back to bed!

A Wish to come true! #WDYS

Solid and sturdy steps lead up/down through giant pillars gracefully holding up the golden arches year after year. If they could speak but one word, it would be “everlasting.”
Imagine the stories these columns would tell! Day after day, people pass under the grand vaults, some happy and free, others not so much!
I wonder if I will ever walk into the picture and pass under the golden arches; if so, I will make a wish. Until that time, I will consider what that wish might be.

I Confess

Another believe it or not story!

I heard the music as I entered the room, but all that was in my imagination since the room was empty and very still. I knew it was only an illusion because it happens now and then.   

Whenever my mind turns to the wonder of God, the evil one works a trick on my sense of hearing mainly, hearing. I have reached the age to reason that this distraction happens whenever I pray or meditate on His Will.  

The evil one leaves you alone when he has you where he wants you. Please don’t believe me, try it! Begin to pray sincerely, ask God to help you save your soul, and the diversion begins.  

The above story was inspired by Fantango’s Story Starter, he starts off by offering a phrase to inspire a story, today the phrase is underlined above.

Better Late than Never!

Okay, I’ll try this Six Sentence Story challenge; a little late prompt, was initiated from Sunday October third — FOUNTAIN

The way I understand the rules, the following Wed. this story will continue! OH WoW THAT’S TODay!

************************************

Take the word “fountain.” The fountain has a lot of different meanings for different people; most definitions remind me of water (but not all) . When we are born, hopefully, our parents take us to the Fountain of Baptism which makes us a child of God.

Consider the “Fountain of youth with stories as we grow older, although fictional in nature, searching for YOUTH. You know finding the fountain, drinking the water, etc., depending on how much we drink, we go back to our youth; the journey backward is an adventure in itself.

In truth far better to search for that TRUE FOUNTAIN that takes you forward to your goal in life, onward we go!

Onward we go!

Short Story to Rouse your Imagination

Across the Water

Arriving finally at the shore of a large lake, the children were excited. “We can see all the way across the water,” they said!
“Look, see that home. It looks so tall and scary.”

“There is a footpath, and we can walk all around the lake to the other side; what an adventure. We will pack a lunch and go tomorrow.”

They followed the path the next day; within a few hours, they were in front of that large home, now looking across the water to where they came.

“Look! Across the water, there is that scary house again!”

I See a Story — What do you see?

Keep it Alive!

Lately, I have been spreading my wings and trying to write short stories.
So I begin with this beautiful photo ABOVE.


One day an angel from heaven overheard a mother and her tiny child speaking as they walked through the forest.
"Do you see those beautiful rays flowing down from heaven upon God's earth?  Those are graces He gives us always, but sometimes like now, when the sun is waking up and peeking through the clouds and trees, we can see those graces.  Yes, they flow down, but I feel like they can be thought of as a ladder-like daddy has to climb up.  Up, up if only we could, like the birds we would see so far overall these treetops."
The little angel was so happy to listen; the angel flew back to tell God how much they appreciated Him and His gift of grace. 
God said, "If only the entire world could be so wise.  Peace would be the reward."

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bouquet – Sept. 16, 2021

A BOUQUET

A Short Story to entertain! Titled: Me – Myself – and I

A party for me, myself and I, with beautiful decorations, are planned. Beautiful Bouquets will be placed here and there, along with ribbons and bows.


I love presents, and I hope I get lots and lots of gifts. Flowers too!
I am so excited! After all, it is my special day!


I need a new dress, and I hope I have a good hair day! I think I will put a bouquet of pins in my hair. I have such lovely hair, I want to show it off.


Finally, the day arrived, and everyone was coming! Everyone that I invited, that is.
I, I, and I nothing else seems important than what I want.


The sound of the doorbell ringing was music to my ears, each time, it meant a new gift for me.
The presents were all neatly stacked around the decorative bouquets, but one of them was rather strange because it was round in shape. Oh well! I wondered! Round is good. It has no end!
Upon opening the gifts and tossing them from right to left, she grabbed that box very brightly wrapped with a circular form.
What!
What kind of gift is this, a box without a bottom? Putting her hand into the package, it seemed to go down as far as she could reach; she stretched her arm but felt nothing. Raising her hand as she reached for the card; the card, she neglected to read, it said: Stop reaching DOWN to SELF, reach UP to find your BOUQUET from God.

Adam and Eve — Not quite!

A Short story you may have heard a similar version in the past!

Fantango gives us a tease of words to use, this week I placed it into my FSS below in bold letters.

My story begins –

***********

Excitedly Arron and Evie were anxious to explore their new property, remembering the warning words of their father. "Whatever, don't go near the well; the brick masons are coming tomorrow to fix those loose bricks surrounding Gracie our well.  Gracie blesses us with saving water, but as you can see, it is easy to fall into the well until those bricks are set."
 
Hmmm!  Evie thought!  She was daring alright and got a little too close while Arron tried to pull her away!  The worse did happen!  They both tripped and fell into the deep well.  Down, down with the speed of lightning!

It seemed like hands were reaching out to them as they moved faster but never hitting bottom; they zoomed down lower and lower.  Then suddenly, they felt on their backside something firm as if they were now riding not down but up!  Higher and higher was their awareness. 
Shooting up and right out of a rabbit hole.  The children knew it was a rabbit's hole because of all the rabbit skins hanging all around them. 
Arron said, "I heard of falling through the rabbit hole but never rising up and out from one." He laughed!

"Brrr! It's cold here wherever we are. I am freezing." Said, Evie
"Here, let's wrap up in one of these rabbit skins," said Arron, and so they did clothe themselves.  
"What happened to us?"
"We fell from Grace!" Said Arron, "I don't think you sufficiently appreciated Our Father's warning."
