Writing Prompt: Choose your adventure

One day I decided to walk alone as far as I could walk in Sylhet (Bangladesh). My journey took me to a variety of places. I stopped in front of a shop where people were going in and out to buy I don’t know what. I was curious I walked slowly I was looking for a slight opening to get in and see what is this thing everyone is excited about. Luckily I found a spot where a woman left hoping to get back later. I took the opportunity and inched my way in, I heard a bunch of people holding a strange thing,I couldn’t really figure out the thing,the voices were getting louder, the seller kept raising his price.I thought to myself I must know what it is and maybe I will buy it.

Evening was approaching fast,the man hadn’t been able to sell his precious thing. I went close to him and was surprised to see an ordinary rock.Why would all these people be so anxious to get hold of this rock was puzzling me. I wouldn’t even pay a dime for it,someone in the crowd heard this and told the owner what he had overheard. There was a huge commotion they all glared at me,I wasn’t scared at all I glared back at them. One of them said,”Hey you cheeky fellow,how did you get in here?”

I looked at him and replied, “I got in the same way you did what’s the big deal.”

He pushed me and told me to get lost.  I knew I was there to stay and get that piece of rock even if I had to stay there for a long time.I was looking for a way to get close to the owner of the rock. I started feeling uneasy as if someone was piercing a hole on my back with her look,frightened I turned back,there she was with an evil smile looking at me.

What do you want I said, almost feeling guilty. She turned around and walked away. Something happened to me,was it her piercing look or did she put some kind of spell on me. I lost my interest in that rock and came out. The sun was shining bright I was hungry,a vendor was passing by with a load full of oranges. I bought one and sat under the shade of a tree eating my orange.

I was lost in my thoughts I didn’t want to go anywhere but stay put right where I was. Then the most magical thing happened…
