DP Daily Prompts: One–Way Street

Congrats! You are the owner of a new machine.The catch ? It comes in two models,each traveling one way onlky: the past or the future.Which do you choose ,and why?

One way streets are annoying to me.The day we arrived here we ended up in a one way-street,the cab driver had to go around to reach us to our destination, it was the first thing in the morning for us,for him I’m not sure, judging by his delightful mood it might have been his first obstacle he faced as well.

Wait a minute this is not what you want me to write. The prompt is asking me which new model machine will I choose, I am the owner of one.

I’d love to own the past model, I know what happened I want to see the rerun, Future may not be as attractive as the past.

Why do I want to own the past model? It was the time of my life when I had a lot of fun. I’d like to go back to my days when we were inventing new things,learning how to read,write and show my parents how well I was doing. My parents loved to see me enjoying my school , and friends I made.

My older brother wanted took me to a restaurant, he ordered juice for me, I didn’t like it,I took two sips and I told him I couldn’t drink it anymore. He took me to the restaurant again,this time he ordered milkshake for me I sipped it once then in minutes I drank all of it. My brother said: now I know what you like, next time I’ll order the same thing for you.

These are memories that I cherish and they were pleasant, this is why I’d like a machine that would take me to my past.

The future model would be uncertain and perhaps full of unpleasant things!

365 Writing Prompts: Exhale

Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong–and then suddenly,you knew it would be alright.

This was quite sometime ago, I was going back to Dhaka from my hometown,I decided to go by air, which only takes twenty five minutes, whereas it is over four hours by train, I was happy I made this decision, the thought I’d save so many hours delighted me.

The plane took off without any problem, soon I saw we were circling the city, but then it dawned on me why isn’t the plane landing, this thought scared me out of my wits, what’s wrong the words kept echoing in my mind, suddenly the passenger sitting next to me said: “How much longer will it take for the plane to land, this is my first time traveling by air?”

I looked at her innocent face and stayed quiet, she didn’t know there was a problem ,I didn’t want to scare her.

After flying over the city for more than forty five minutes, the plane made a belly landing. The pilot had to empty the fuel before he did that or else, you can imagine what would happen, and I wouldn’t be able to write about my scary experience!
