DP Daily Prompt: Great Expectations

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Tell us about one thing (or more) that you promised yourself you’d accomplish by the end of the year. How would you feel once you do? What if you don’t?

My goal each year is to read a number of books , with that promise I buy a certain number of books, so far I have not read all the books I bought, but I still  am aiming to read the ones I have.

I read two out of six, four more have to be finished before I take a trip to the bookstore to buy more books.

I have read two if I can read two more I’d be happy and would aim to finish the rest without getting stressed out, if I’m unable, I’ll continue reading them!!



Fiction: Furious

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Libby was on her way to the market to buy some groceries,her mother gave her a list of items she needed, Libby was walking along and singing her favorite song , “And he’ll be coming down the mountain with a banjo on his knee.”

Suddenly she heard someone calling, she looked around,lo and behold it was her best friend Felicity, running to catch up with her, Libby stopped to see why her friend was so desperate to talk to her.

Felicity: I was trying to stop you Libby, I heard  the stores were closed today,they’d  be open tomorrow.”

“I do not believe you Felicity, I’d have to find out myself, there is no reason for the stores to be closed, you go home, I’d see you after my shopping is done.

Felicity’s trick did not work, so she turned around and headed home, Libby continued walking,when she was close to the Supermarket she looked for her slip to check what was on it, but she couldn’t find it, she decided to go back home and get her mother to write another list, she found her mother waiting on the door step, when her mother noticed Libby with an empty bag, she completely lost it, it gave her a severe headache, it took three Tylenol pills to get better, she made up her mind never to send Libby for grocery shopping!!

DP weekly writing challenge contd. Shorola AKA Corolla cliff hanger part 2

Shorola was unhappy, she wondered , “why do they hate me, I wanted to be their friend, Mom you’re wrong I tried to be nice, they still dislike me, oh please  God , can you help me?”    D own came a bearded fellow  from up above.  “My dear child,what’s the matter,why are you crying?”

“No one likes me ,everyone hates me, they tease me ,they call me Corolla,my name is Shorola ,I wanted to be their friend .I brought some candy for  them .Tom the bully took them away. I have nothing to give them.”

“Okay my dear child I know why you are sad. I must tell you something. You cannot buy friendship.  I’ll try to help you,you must remember my instructions. Any mistake you make will work against you. I’ll give you three things:  1. A gold bracelet, 2. A silver bracelet ,3. An emerald bracelet.  Each one has its own magic.  I’ll also give you three pouches to put them in. The pouch with the letter G,will be for the gold bracelet, S for silver and E for emerald. Do not mix them up or all the magic will be lost. Put them in a  safe place. Don’t tell anyone about them. When you try them on, each one will tell you what they can do for you. I am not going to tell you what they can and cannot do. You have to find out yourself. I’ll show up one more time to see how you’re doing.” Suddenly he disappeared.

“But I am scared nice man, I want you to come back and help me.”  There was no answer. She thought of telling her mother about this, but he told her it wasn’t a good idea. What will I do, I am so sleepy, maybe the nice man will come in my dream and will tell me, what kind of magic the bracelets have, will he or won’t he? I’ll sleep, before I do, I’ll put my pouches in a safe place. I know I’ll put them under my mattress, no one will see them, I HOPE!
