At the airport

Photo by Dawn Miller

 

I’ve been searching for the whole day. Where exactly are you? 

The annoying clock is constantly ticking, reminding me that time is running out. But I can’t leave without you. 

Yet, I’m tired and famished. Oh yes, now I remember, Chloe gave me a snack bar which I’d put in my pocket. Let me take a short break before continuing my search.

What’s this? My ring?! So you were in my pocket all along, yet I’d searched the entire airport for you. Silly me!

Sammie placed her ring on her third finger, said the magic words, and vanished into thin air.

At the fairyland, Sammie landed on Chloe’s rooftop with a loud thud.

“What are you doing up there?”

“Hi Chloe, I guess I need more practice. This is after all only my second arrival at the fairyland.”

“Why are you so late?”

“I lost my fairy ring…but I’d found it.”

“Let’s go, my wedding can’t start without my bridesmaid.”

“Wait…how do I get down?”

“Use your wings!”

“Oh…yes, I’ve forgotten I’ve wings.”

“Hurry!”

Regret

Once, I was one of them. Riding my bike with my buddies, roaming around the town, searching for ghosts. We, the ghost busters, vowed to protect the people from the evil spirits that sucked the souls of the living.

One day, we received a tip-off on the whereabouts of the Master. We devised a foolproof plan to get rid of him.

Before we set off, my wife pleaded with me to abort the plan.

“He’s more powerful than those you’d slain. Don’t risk your life. Our unborn child needs a father,” she cried.

“I’ll be back. I promise.”

I turned and left with my buddies. That was the last I saw of her.

We failed our mission to slay the Master spirit.

As a result, we were turned into soul-sucking spirits. The Master threatened to harm our family members if we didn’t bring him the souls of the living.

We had no choice but to oblige.

“Time’s up! All pens down,” the teacher shouted.

Phew! Finally managed to complete my composition on time.

FFFAW #67: Life

Here’s little Bob cuddled in my arms… his peaceful sleep made me grateful for his existence.

There… little Bob was taking his first step… he fell, cried, but he stood up and walked again. He taught me the most important lesson in life.

It was his first day in school… I was overwhelmed with joy. My little Bob was growing up well.

Was that Bob? Of course it was! He bought his first car, and was driving us for dinner. We were proud parents.

Oh mind! He came home with his girlfriend, and they announced that they would be getting married soon. Life is full of happenings.

Do you like the word grand? Oh… I love it… especially when Bob Junior cried for grandma, and hugged me as if I was his precious.

Today, I lay here… admiring the beautiful ceiling of this church… listening to the eulogies… and watching my life unfolds once again before me.

I… am… contented…
