FFftPP Week 10: Deprivation


I know it’s only been three weeks… but it feels like eternity!

I have to stay here for three months in order to complete my Advance Diploma in Witchcraft. The seniors had forewarned me… but I thought I could handle it! I’m better than them in self-control!

Now I know… I can’t. This… is too much for me to bear.

This is a ridiculous school with absurd rules! The weather is damn hot! Yet… THEY BAN ICE CREAM in this school! How am I going to survive without ice cream for three long months!

Fine! I’m not a girl who gives up easily. Therefore, I secretly made my own ice cream in the comfort of my hostel’s room. But… they have a secret detector to sense the presence of ice cream!!! This is driving me nuts!!!

Now… I’m been punished. I have to stand here… facing the window for the entire day.

Wait a minute! What’s that in the sky? Is it… banana split… gold rush… coit tower… chocolate ring-a-ding…

It can’t be! Why do the clouds look like ice cream?

  1. Reminds me a bit like she is at Hogworts but instead of banning other things they ban ice cream. How could they, that’s horrible 😦 And I think she really needs it, she’s seeing ice cream shaped clouds!

  2. She is someone that really loves ice cream and has enough of an imagination to see it anytime she wants to! I don’t blame her for yearning for it so much…..I can relate to this….because I love ice cream too! Cute story. 🙂

  3. Entertaining tale, as always Fun! Why am I not shocked to read witchcraft and ice-creams in your post? You really have the most playful imagination that could color even a black and white photo. Clever you! 😀
