Daily Prompt: Banned

In response to daily post’s one word prompt : Banned

Cecilia was excited she saw an ad in the magazine about a fantastic cookbook, it will forever fix her problem of cooking delicious meals to entertain her friends and family.

She was ready to go to the bookstore to buy the book. On her way she had a few obstacles on the roads, the road close to the store was closed for repairs, she had to use the detour. She kept telling herself to calm down, she’d get the book without any problem, after all how many people would go this early to buy a cookbook.

When she reached the bookstore she saw a large sign on the entrance, “Cookbook Banned!”

‘What!’ She said, ‘it can’t be.’

Someone in the store heard her and asked, ‘Can I help you madam?’

‘Yes!’ she said, ‘Why is this cookbook banned, I came to buy it, what’s wrong?’

The store clerk said, ‘I’m sorry Miss, there seems to be a problem with it!’

  1. Dear Ranu,

    I like how, in your story, Cecilia overcame the closed road by taking an alternate route. I’m sure she will do something similar, that is, overcome a seeming obstacle, with regard to the banned book :).

    All good wishes,
