In response to daily prompt : Risky
I always found walking on ice rather Risky,
Keeping my balance while walking is tricky.
Walking from home to my job took five minutes,
In Winter the same distance to walk was ten minutes.
The size of the road remained the same as in Summer,
The ice on the pavement made my walking pace slower.
When the streets are icy it’s dangerous to walk carelessly,
The slippery street scared me so I walked carefully.
Each day I prayed winter to come to an end faster,
But Winter did not rush it enjoyed leaving slower!
You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch—each time you use your power, it costs you one day( as in you’ll live one day less).How would you use this power, if at all?
The catch takes away the fun of predicting the future. The fun of predicting is taken away by saying, I’ll lose a day of my life every time I use the power.
For the sake of argument I’m writing what if I have only thirty days to live and because I have the power to predict the future, there’ll be friends and family interested to know, given the fact each prediction costs me a day’s life, I’d lose my life in a very short time.
I am sorry but I will not use my power it’s too risky.

Using a potion to sharpen,one of my senses and dull the others,is something I will not do. And the worst part of it is accepting from a mysterious man.No I think I’ll prefer my senses to be normal. So many things can go wrong if I try a potion, which I know nothing about. When we are prescribed medicine by a bona fide physician,we are cautioned about the reaction. Whether our system will work the same as countless others.There is always a percentage of people who have adverse reaction,even though it’s a small percentage.Likewise the potion good or bad mysterious or not will have to be placed in the same category as the regular medicine,prescribed by genuine doctors,who have academic qualification and also have proved themselves worthy of practicing their craft.
When it’s a mysterious man, no one knows about him, it is highly dangerous to try anything he tells me to take. I will not try it,no matter what he says.It is risky to try something that will sharpen one sense and dull the others,is not something I will do.
