Take a quote from your favorite movie—There’s the title of your post.Now Write!

The title I have chosen is: “I’d do anything for you, dear Anything”~(Oliver Twist) ūüôā

Once upon a time in the land of the unknown, there lived a sweet little girl, her beauty was known in this unknown land.She was out for a walk and suddenly she realized she is too far from her home.

While traveling she met a strange guy who loved to travel, he was not fussy about what kind of a place, he was prepared to go anywhere, he was¬†¬†a man gentle in nature and not so good to look at who ¬†wanted ¬†to visit this land of the unknown but had no idea how to get there. He was what you’d call a well-to -do man, he had strange habits, he’d go anywhere to show off the treasures accumulated by his parents.It was his luck or misfortune (didn’t matter what you’d think) his wealthy parents left this world to explore the hereafter.

I wish to introduce this man to all of you mortals, he is, Revilo, “Did you say, Revilo,what kind of a ¬†name is it, said a young lady?”

Revilo was perturbed by this question,”It does not matter what kind of a ¬†name it is, my parents could not think of a name so they picked five letters from the English alphabet: R is rich; E is efficient; V for valiant; I for intelligent; L for lonely; and the O for opulent.”

“Oh my! said the young lady, are you really rich?”

“Yes my dear said Revilo.”

“E in your name stands for Efficient, are you really efficient, tell me what can you do asked Patricia the young lady.”

“I’d do anything for you,dear Anything,” replied Revilo.

“Then come with me said Patricia I will take you to my land and show you a place which needs all the letters of your name, you have to transform it into a thriving happy place for the inhabitants, this is what I’d like you to do for me.”

Revilo thought it over, he had money, he knew how to do things well,he was brave, he considered himself very intelligent, he was lonely, no one was waiting for him to go back, and he was wealthy, he was not lacking any of the gifts required to carry out the project.

He wanted to impress Patricia, he agreed to take on the job.

Patricia and Revilo walked for days to reach this land, on their way they met travelers who warned them not to go to this unknown land. Revilo wasn’t afraid he disregarded their advice and went on with Patricia by his side.

After a long thirty days they reached the place. What Revilo saw clearly discouraged him he could not go back on his word, therefore he planned in his head how he’d start this project. He wished in his mind the letter L in his name would stand for Lucky, it was too late, it couldn’t be done.

Patricia was confident Revilo would be able to make the land a gorgeous place for everyone.

Revilo sat on the stump of a tree, he was worn out by the traveling and decided to rest, soon he fell asleep, he dreamed he was in a magical place, there he met a starving man crying for food, how can this be magical when there is a starving poor man, surely everyone should have plenty to eat and drink here, He asked the man why he was starving in a magical place.

What the man told him completely befuddled him. There is a man here who is called a magician, he can do anything anyone wants at the push of a button. The poor man told Revilo to be careful, he’d be asked to find the button, if he is unable the magician has the power to change him into whatever he wants.

“Is this why you are poor he asked the man?”

“Yes, he said, I could not find the button.”

Someone’s pinch awakened Revilo, who could it be, he was disturbed , he was getting so close to solve the mystery of the button, now he is back to zero and has this insurmountable task before him.

Slowly he opened his eyes, it was time to wake up and start planning he thought.He heard a bone chilling noise, he jumped up and found a huge man staring and smiling.

“Hello, said the man, and what brings you here?”

For a fraction of a second Revilo froze, words were stuck in his mouth, he shook himself and looked at the man.

The man said,”I’m sorry, my name is, Fiddlehead , I’m here to help anyone who needs me.”

Revilo ¬†straightened himself, in his fit of excitement he stood up, “can you really help?” he voiced.

I wouldn’t say it if I couldn’t uttered Fiddlehead.

Revilo calmed down and related his story from the time he met Patricia, Fiddlehead was unmoved, he declared, “this is not a tough job, tell me when do you want this done.”

“Oh my God pronounced Revilo, I cannot believe I’m so blessed, thank you, thank you thank you, is it possible to do it in a week?”

“One whole week, that long? Remarked Fiddlehead, why I can get it done in Two days, what will you give me for my effort?”

Revilo had a long gold chain his mother gave him to keep with him in case he ran short of cash on his travels. He quickly took it out and gave it to Fiddlehead, “this is my gift to you for your effort, said Revilo and handed it to Fiddlehead.”

“You do not have to give it now, I’d love to get it after my job is done.”

” No,no you keep it, I want Patricia to know,When I said, I’d do anything for her, I meant it, announced Revilo.”

With these words they parted and Fiddlehead promised he’d see Revilo, on the third day.

Revilo and Patricia arrived on the designated place on the third day, there was no sign of Fiddlehead, morning turned to afternoon,then to evening followed by night.

Neither Revilo , nor Patricia expressed anything, they could not believe they were cheated.

On the fourth day there was an uproar, a bunch of people were busy taking away  Fiddlehead who was all tied up to the nearest police station. It is believed he had deceived far too many people, they were ready to get him. The opportunity presented itself when Fiddlehead was trying to bluff another innocent soul.

Patricia thanked Revilo for his efforts and admitted it was an impossible  task and Revilo was only human,to expect something like this was her fault.

They went their separate ways and promised to meet each other some day!

DP Daily Prompt:Your Time To Shine….post by ranu

Early Bird or Night Owl:   I am an early bird.I cannot stay up past ten o clock at night. Every day I wake up by 5:30 in the morning. Sometimes a bit earlier. This is a habit I have from a very early age. When I get up early morning there are a whole slew of things I can accomplish.  My brain works better .I can comprehend a lot faster.

Once my roommate said by going to bed early I am at a disadvantage compared to my other classmates. They study till two in the morning ,they are getting a lot done she said. I tried it for me and at a very poor time. I had my final year exams in the university. I chose to stay up till 1:30 am. When I went to do the exam,I felt sick.I almost thought I will never make it. I gathered all of my will power and promised myself it would be the last time I’ll do such a thing. I was lucky I passed.

So I’m an early bird and doing quite well maintaining it.

DP Daily Prompt: History Of language ( The third time’s a charm)post by Ranu

There was a poor farmer.He lived alone in a hut made of mud.He was alone,he had to cook for himself. He did not earn enough to hire a maid. He went to the market daily to buy fish.It was cheaper than meat or chicken.It also took minimum time to cook.He had one bad habit .He left his house everyday to play the game of  cards.He made sure the food was cooked before he went to see his buddies.

One day as usual he cooked his meal and went to play with his friends.When he returned he had an eerie feeling something was not right.He immediately checked his food.Sure enough it was gone ,he had no fish that evening.He had to be contented with boiled rice. Next day he went as usual to play,when he came back ,same thing happened, the fish was missing. He was furious and decided to stay back to find ¬†the thief. To his surprise ,he saw a tabby coming in ever so slowly.He was silent, as soon as the cat went for the fish, he caught it. He said out loud,”So you are the thief,who was eating my fish,I will kill you this second”. The way the cat looked at him ¬†softened his heart, he gave up the idea of killing it and let it go. Then he said,”I know why they say third time’s the lucky charm.” I found the thief,when it came the third day and caught it.
