It’s been a while since I’ve participated in the Friday Fictioneers Challenge. The objective is to write a 100 word story based on the photo prompt provided. Today’s photo was provided by Claire Fuller.
Nick pulled books from the shelf and dropped them into the box behind him.
“Gram said the books were magic.” Clairy climbed the ladder.
Nick rolled his eyes picked up a book and opened it. Nothing. No magic. He slammed it shut blowing dust into the air. “Prove it.”
Laughing Clairy reached for the higher books. The ladder wobbled beneath her.
Tossing the book back in the box, Nick mumbled, “Would serve her right if she fell.”
Nick spun around. Clairy, stunned, held open a book from which a swirling, sparkling mist of stars spread out across the ceiling.
