Rhymes with Trouble– Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction

Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task of the challenge is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the little frog. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

Rhymes with Trouble

“Double, double, toil and…”

“Mum! What are you doing?”

“Uhm. Restocking our inventory for the online shop.”

“Huh? I thought they were extracts, distillates, stuff like that.”

“Yes, but…”

“So what’s this mumbo-jumbo all about then?”

“Incantation, dear. It’s called an incantation.”

“Like a spell? Are you telling me your Miracoulous Anti-Aging Balm… ?”

“There is something…”

“You can’t be serious.”

“…you don’t know yet.”

“Have you gone Wicca now or something?”

“Haven’t I taught you anything? The Old Religion doesn’t automatically give you magic.”

“No? And you’re an expert on magic now?”

“Esmeralda sit down! We need to talk.”

(100 words)

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

(in case the connection to the prompt is too vague this week. I was thinking ‘bubble!’ when I saw the picture.)

  1. Gabi,
    I want a sequel! Will Esmeralda embrace the family business? Will she discover her own magical genes? Love the ease of dialogue and the way the dilemma arises naturally from it. So entertaining.
