To find the first sentence of your story. Take the third book from the left of your bookshelf. On Page forty-two, third sentence from the top, is the first sentence of your story.(if it is a blank page , keep going until you find a page with type.)

I lean forward slowly as though she is a Rottweiler, and she quickly shoves the papers at me and retreats.

I couldn’t even get the chance to say, “What are these.”

Well there was a bundle, I wasn’t ready to read through all of them. I kept turning pages until I found something interesting, just as I was ready to give up, it was as if by magic I heard something,”Hello please don’t trash me , there is something valuable for you to read.”

“Really paper you can talk, I said out loud.”

Was I imagining or did I actually hear those words. I shuffled the papers and picked the one I thought spoke to me, then I heard, “You found me, please read me it is all about lowering your blood pressure.”

I took the paper to the kitchen, as I was hungry I thought , I ‘ll make my sandwich first then read about blood pressure. I took two slices of white bread, the voice came back, “are you sure you want to use white bread, don’t you have whole wheat bread, it’s better, you know?”

I was irritated but thought it’s true whole wheat bread is better for me.I was about to put a thick slice of roast beef between the two slices, “bad selection.” I heard, “how about lettuce and tomatoes?”

Okay I agreed and did as I was told,I was afraid to use mayonnaise just in case I hear the voice again, instead I settled for some mustard. I prepared my sandwich, poured a glass of water, I was ready to eat my creation.

While preparing my lunch I thought it best to put the paper in a safe place, my window was open for some fresh air, to my dismay a gust of wind blew my piece of paper out the window. I stood there watching the paper fly away to never,never land!

Daily Prompt: Golden Age

pad2015-s1.png (308ร—60)

If you had to live forever as either a child, an adolescent,or an adult, which would you choose– and why?

I don’t think living forever is an option for me. If it happens by chance, even if I don’t want to. I’d prefer to live forever as a child.

There are countless reasons for my decision. When I recall my childhood there wasn’t a day in my life when I was unhappy. It was a perfect childhood in my mind.

I had my loving parents, I had the security every one needs and unbelievable siblings except one. You cannot beat this feeling.

My days were filled with school, play and delicious food my mother cooked. I wasn’t worried about going hungry, or lack of shelter, or shortage of people to play with, God the Almighty provided it for us.

It was like the old song, “where never was heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day.”

It was not the case with adolescence, or adulthood. These two stages were encompassed with sorrow, fear, and everything else that my childhood did not confront me ย with.

Comparatively childhood was the best years for me!
