365 Writing Prompts: No you see me

You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower?Tell us a story.

I know I have a secret superpower, I can appear and disappear whenever I want to. I wasn’t sure how I’d use this power.

I was curious to know how this power of mine can be useful, keeping this in mind I went to a drug store to get some face cream for me. While checking the different brands, I noticed two little boys in front of the shelf of chocolates, are they trying to steal some was the thought that struck me?

Immediately I used my power of disappear and landed close to them, I overheard the boys  telling each other, “you let me know when someone’s coming,so I can pick a couple of these delicious chocolates and put them in my pocket, we will share them when we’re out.”

It was time for me to appear in front of the boys before they stole the chocolates, Hi I said, aren’t these chocolates delicious, will you buy some?

No one of them said and both turned around to leave, I knew they were disappointed but I felt relieved I stopped them from stealing, as they were about to leave I talked to them about chocolates and told them the dark chocolates were good for health, the boys were happy to let me know which ones they liked and dark ones were too bitter they didn’t like them.

I volunteered to buy some dark and some milk chocolates, we will taste them and find out which ones were delicious and the ones not so good. I bought a mixture of chocolates and invited them to sit on the nearby bench and taste them. The boys were delighted they’d be able to eat some chocolates and discuss which ones were  tastier.

I let the boys taste most of the chocolates, I only broke two small pieces to taste, it was not really about the taste it was me trying to be friendly with the boys.

When the the chocolates were eaten and we gave our verdict about which ones were tastier I stood up to leave, one of them said, ” thank you so much for letting us eat the chocolates, we were craving for chocolates today,we wanted to steal some, we are so glad you showed up you stopped us from stealing.”

I gave each a hug and told them I was proud of them!

DP Daily Prompt: Now You See Me Ranu’s post http:sabethville.wordpress.com

One morning I decided to go for a walk. I randomly selected a spot. I thought it would be perfect,the place was almost deserted. I was walking along quietly humming one of Tagore’s songs,suddenly I saw a tall figure blocking my movement. At first I was terrified and froze ,I slowly raised my head to look up. There he was with a beard so long,it came up to his waist. He knew he had startled me,he tried to lower his voice, “Woman” he said , “Do you want secret power?”  By this time I was beginning to relax,I didn’t feel threatened by him any more. I asked, “What kind of power?”  “It can help you  appear or disappear”, he said.

I pondered a moment and said ,”Okay, when will I get this power”? “Right this minute if you want.”  I agreed. He  told me to be careful,the power according to him would work from noon  to 4:30 pm. He handed me a silver charm,it had an on and off button. I was told no one must see it. I should always have it on me. I thought it’s not difficult, I can do it. “It should be a secret,” he said.

Then the long bearded fellow disappeared. I wanted to ask some more about the charm. I felt I was on top of the world with this charm.My next move was to use this unbelievable piece of silver. I went to the super market and ordered some groceries, I told the sales man ,I’d pick up at four pm. I clicked my charm to make me disappear and land at the mall. It was very busy,children came in droves to see Santa and also  hand him their wish list. I watched them and loved the interaction between the kids and Santa. No one saw me I could go anywhere in that mall. Then the worst thing happened,in my excitement I forgot to check the time. To my dismay it was 5 pm, it was past the time and the charm won’t work.

I was frantic I kept switching the on/off button. I wanted to be visible,but could not. I sat on one of the bench,all I could do was cry. I prayed for the bearded fellow to appear to get help. It was 9:45,the mall would close in fifteen minutes,I am invisible, and am unable to get my groceries. Five minutes before ten the bearded man appeared. I was ecstatic but he was not, he scolded me for a few seconds and magically transformed me back . I was visible. He asked me, “How did you like your power?” I said, “I am returning your charm,I want to be normal”. The magician disappeared and left me wondering if I made the right decision!
