You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower? Tell us a story.

If I had a secret power to appear and disappear at will, I’d use it to help people who desperately need help. By need I do not mean financial only, there are many types of need.

Think about a helpless child who is left in the care of a baby sitter. This person takes advantage of the mother’s helplessness. He treats the child badly and threatens her if she tells her parents, he’d cut her into pieces and give her flesh to the dogs to eat. A five year old would be scared to say anything. This is where I’d like to appear call the proper authorities to arrest the guy, put him in jail and throw away the keys.

There are other instances when a certain person needs help, one would be an old individual who lives by himself or herself suddenly falls sick, this is where I’d like to use my superpowers, I’d take this person to the nearest hospital for treatment.

There are so many different things one can do with one’s superpower. I’ve only given two examples.

365 Writing Prompts: No you see me

You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower?Tell us a story.

I know I have a secret superpower, I can appear and disappear whenever I want to. I wasn’t sure how I’d use this power.

I was curious to know how this power of mine can be useful, keeping this in mind I went to a drug store to get some face cream for me. While checking the different brands, I noticed two little boys in front of the shelf of chocolates, are they trying to steal some was the thought that struck me?

Immediately I used my power of disappear and landed close to them, I overheard the boys  telling each other, “you let me know when someone’s coming,so I can pick a couple of these delicious chocolates and put them in my pocket, we will share them when we’re out.”

It was time for me to appear in front of the boys before they stole the chocolates, Hi I said, aren’t these chocolates delicious, will you buy some?

No one of them said and both turned around to leave, I knew they were disappointed but I felt relieved I stopped them from stealing, as they were about to leave I talked to them about chocolates and told them the dark chocolates were good for health, the boys were happy to let me know which ones they liked and dark ones were too bitter they didn’t like them.

I volunteered to buy some dark and some milk chocolates, we will taste them and find out which ones were delicious and the ones not so good. I bought a mixture of chocolates and invited them to sit on the nearby bench and taste them. The boys were delighted they’d be able to eat some chocolates and discuss which ones were  tastier.

I let the boys taste most of the chocolates, I only broke two small pieces to taste, it was not really about the taste it was me trying to be friendly with the boys.

When the the chocolates were eaten and we gave our verdict about which ones were tastier I stood up to leave, one of them said, ” thank you so much for letting us eat the chocolates, we were craving for chocolates today,we wanted to steal some, we are so glad you showed up you stopped us from stealing.”

I gave each a hug and told them I was proud of them!
