2, 4, 6 , 8 beep  – 7, 4, 5, 6 beep – 3, 4, 9, 7 beep. Ella has tried all the possible combinations, how could she forget it? She doesn’t have much time, the walls are closing on her.  5, 6, 7, 8 beep. Her breath is shallow, her strength is fading away. Help me, help me!

Wake up darling, it’s only a nightmare!

** Another short story, 52 words, for Sue’s writephoto.

I love short stories, around 50 words, we can say so much about it and the best is that the reader mind can fly with all the possibilities left hidden between the lines. So here is my 52 words story for Sue’s challenge: MAGIC

From her bedroom window, Ella sees nature dressed in white like a bride waiting for the groom. The bare branches are dancing the wedding waltz. The sky is deep blue, yes, something blue for good luck. Turning to the mirror, Ella sees the scars on her skin. Good luck to who?

If I was walking in the forest

and found a magical portal

For sure I’d love to go back to the past

Not so sure if  I’d like to know the future

But the past, yes, of course!

Not only to look at it but to change it

But how to change it

if at that time

I did what I thought to be right

And I didn’t know better

Would I be the same today

If the past wasn’t the same

Maybe it’s best

to leave the past there

Bye bye magical portal

I don’t need you

Joining Sue’s writephoto challenge

And you? If you come across a magical portal, would you go in?

IMG_1919Where do you eat breakfast?

In my kitchen, I love to prepare something health and eat it slowly enjoying the moment. I wake up early everyday, around 5:30, to have ‘me time’: I journal, do yoga and meditation. At 7 am I’m in the kitchen preparing lunch bags for the 4 of us.  I finally have time for my breakfast when all these tasks are done.

 

 

 

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have an evening with?

Well, if it is permited to use my imagination, I’d like to have an evening with the ladies of Sex and the City, the characters, not the actors, of the series. It will be a funny evening, only laughing, talking about nothing serious, only drinking and relaxing. Of course wearing glorious shoes!

IMG_4093If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be? 

I’d be a coconut tree, tall and strong living on a tropical island!

We are almost reaching the beach. It wasn’t an easy day, I hate when Hugh talks to me like that. The children should be OK at the cottage with the nanny, better there than here with this weather and his mood changing all the time.

I should have listened to the old folks in the village “nobody go that way this time of the year, it isn’t safe”, but of course Hugh needs to proof that he is right and nothing can change his mind.  He came here to find an answer and he won’t stop until he gets it. I can’t understand why he is following the advice of that old witch, he is a business man, practical and never believed in magic. I shouldn’t have agreed with this nonsense, not without knowing what he is looking for, what the witch told him.

We should be close, I can hear the waves and Hugh is getting nervous, more than the usual.

What is he taking out of his backpack? No! It can’t be! How didn’t I see it coming! No Hugh! Please, no!

I’m alone now and my body is ebbing away.

 

Sharing with Sue’s Thursday photo prompt. The name of the character Hugh is for my friend Hugh from Hugh’s Views & News, he writes great horror/mystery stories and just posted one today ‘When the clocks go back”.  I think he will like that I have named the guy after him. 🙂

Share Your World::Oct 16, 2017

I’m joining Cee’s SYW challenge. Here are the questions:

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? 

Last year I went to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics. I love the city and everything about it: the people, the weather, the food, the beaches, the mountains, the colours. It’s a place completely different from Canada, my country and I love it,  but I’d try Rio, not for long, maybe a year or so. I know there are lots of problems in there, like health care, violence, corruption…, but it would be fun to know more about the culture and the people in an exotic country. Here are few pics from my trip.

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

It would be light blue and it will have a large window, with white lace curtains,  overlooking the Atlantic ocean. I’ll keep the window open, so the ocean breeze will lightly move the curtains. I love the smell of the sea, salt and sand.

IMG_1710“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything” Vicent Van Gogh

I made this journal page few weeks ago and looking back at my tiny art journal I saw this quote last week. A reminder that I need to take more risks, not be so much in the safe side.

Hope you enjoyed my ‘world’, please visit Cee’s blog for more adventures.
