Writing Prompt: Wishes

If you need to, please read the writing prompt rules. Here’s today’s writing prompt:



From front to back, the book’s worn pages are filled with wishes. They’ve all been crossed out, a neat black line running straight through them. Questions churn inside of you, and you flip to the last page, hoping for an answer.

You find one, but wish you hadn’t.

    “For my daughter to die on May 7”
    Pain surged through her head down to her heart as she read the name who asked for doom. In crimson red ink like the blood which she might shed, read “Lady Applehammer”.
    Time was ticking, Alisa had only 4 days till her heart will stop. Now she must answer the questions inside, “To make her last days the happiest, and live to the fullest” or ” Change her fate, that has been written in the book”.

      No forgiveness necessary 😉 It’s interesting to read what you wrote, and I appreciate the participation! After I approve your comments the first time, it automatically approves them after that.
