DP Daily prompt: Elevator (fiction) post by ranu?’
It happened in Chicago. I went to do some shopping in Marshall Fields. I was on the seventh floor and wanted to go to the ground floor immediately.I thought if I take the escalator,it would take longer. I made up my mind to take the elevator. I pressed the down button. I got the elevator within minutes. When the doors opened, I saw someone with his back turned towards me. I was happy to get on and go down fast to take the train .
The man turned around,I could not believe it, it was Willy Wonka! from ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’. He was humming a weird tune.I looked the other way,suddenly he said, Mrs. you are very unfriendly,don’t you know I am Willy Wonka the owner of the greatest chocolate factory? I said ‘maybe,but I don’t care for chocolate’. He looked unhappy,soon he got a grin on his face,’but dear madam he yelled you haven’t tried my chocolate. Here is some eat it slowly and tell me, do you still dislike chocolate? I wanted to make him angry, ‘I said, this one is nothing special and I stand by my word,I do not like chocolate’. Willie was livid,he stamped his foot twirled around and extended his hand for something.Right that moment I uttered,’Mr. Wonka ,be careful, don’t jump the floor might swallow you’ ,then I broke out into an uncontrollable laughter.
Willy said ‘Do you mean I’ll have the same fate as Rumpelstiltskin ?’ ‘You’ve got it Mr. Wonka’. The elevator doors opened up,I looked at the weird fellow,said goodbye and ran to catch the train.
