365 Writing Prompts: Fictional elevator

You’re stuck in the elevator with an intriguing stranger. Write this scene.

I came out of Selfridges  The department store in London, England for  some reason, I was in a hurry to get the Piccadilly line underground tube train. I took the first available elevator, well this is when my plan to get back to my residence in a hurry failed.

I noticed there were others who were in the elevator, they looked like people from some other planet, their language and their behavior was something I hadn’t encountered before. I took a spot and stood there hoping I’d reach the ground fast.

It was not to be, immediately after I entered the door closed. I heard someone say, ” welcome Miss to our unbelievable device, it will take you wherever you want to go, you need to have patience.”

I think I was scared I never heard  an elevator speaking before, in a moment of frenzy I spoke out loud, ” I do not have time, I have to catch my train as soon as possible.”

I had barely finished talking, when right there before me was an odd looking stranger, half his face was covered with a long flowing beard, the other half was clean shaved, when he spoke his teeth resembled Gabriel and Rafa’s, my feline friends, he was wearing Rumplestilskin’s boots and every second made a noise, enough to frighten the bravest human being. As you can guess I am the most  timid person who ever set foot on this planet.

Upon seeing this stranger I looked for another spot to move into, his form seemed to cover the length and width of the elevator, “Miss stay still this is my order or I’ll turn you into a werewolf.”

“Please don’t change me into anything I won’t move from my spot.” I said.

Hearing me speak brought about an earth shaking laughter out of him, I felt the elevator would come apart.

“This  device will take us to an unknown destination, you’d be able to eat and drink, there will be fairies to entertain you, you must stay calm or we’ll end up in a dungeon,return from there would be impossible,” he yelled!

Those words scared me I completely froze and tried to think of the prayers my mom taught me to escape from danger. While I was trying to recall which prayer  would be more suitable. I heard a loud alarm.

The weird man was trying to get my attention, “Hey you he said, did you hear my warning?”

“Warning? ” I repeated !

“Yes, you forgot about the dungeon, from where you never can come out?”

“I do ,Really I remember, I thought you said something else I did not hear?”

“Want me to speak louder?”

“Oh no, I was nervous, I cannot remember what I said?

He seemed to take pity on me and calmed right down, in a very low and friendly voice he said, “I’ll reach you to the right floor so you can take the tube train to, did you mention Piccadilly line?”

“Yes sir, thank you, thank you,” I said with a frightened voice.

“Here we are”, said the spooky guy. “Do not tell anyone about your experience, if you betray me, I’ll come after you, so beware, just tell them you met this awesome nice guy who took you for a ride in his very own elevator, Cheerio folks!”

365 days Writing Prompt: Fictional elevator

You’re stuck in an elevator with an intriguing stranger. Write this scene.

This scenario could have happened to me in real life. I went to see my uncle, I was told his office was on the seventh floor. I pressed the elevator button to go up, when it opened I was terrified of the man inside, he was supposedly the elevator man. There was no one else there to ride the elevator,one look at him I decided it’s best for me to take the stairs.

Huffing and puffing I reached the fifth floor, hoping my uncle was on the fifth floor, the custodian told me he was on the seventh floor. He looked at me and said : “Did you take the stairs?”

I was too embarrassed to admit I took the stairs, once again he showed me the elevator, but I knew there was only two more floors to go, I’d be fine I thought.

This is my elevator story, it is not fiction,it is very real.

It happened in Chicago. I went to do some shopping in  Marshall Fields. I was on the seventh floor and wanted to go to  the ground floor immediately.I thought if I take the escalator,it would take longer. I made up my mind to take the elevator. I pressed the down button.  I got the elevator within minutes. When the doors opened, I saw someone with his back turned towards me. I was happy to get on and go down fast to take the train .

The man turned around,I could not believe it, it was Willy Wonka! from ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’. He was humming a weird tune.I looked the other way,suddenly he said, Mrs. you are very unfriendly,don’t you know I am Willy Wonka the owner of the greatest chocolate factory? I said ‘maybe,but I don’t care for chocolate’. He looked unhappy,soon he got a grin on his face,’but dear madam he yelled you haven’t tried my chocolate. Here is some eat it slowly and tell me, do you still dislike chocolate? I wanted to make him angry, ‘I said, this one is nothing special and I stand by my word,I do not like chocolate’. Willie was livid,he stamped his foot twirled around and extended his hand for something.Right that moment I uttered,’Mr. Wonka ,be careful, don’t jump the floor might swallow you’ ,then I broke out into an uncontrollable laughter.

Willy said ‘Do you mean I’ll have the same fate as Rumpelstiltskin ?’ ‘You’ve got it Mr. Wonka’. The elevator doors opened up,I looked at the weird fellow,said goodbye and ran to catch the train.
