The Shelf – Friday Fictioneers

It’s time for Friday Fictioneers, and this week we have a great photo prompt from Rochelle.

If you fancy having a go, take a look at the prompt, come up with a story approx 100 words in length and post it up.

I hope you enjoy mine, thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

PHOTO PROMPT ยฉ G.L. MacMillan.

The Shelf

‘You understand the conditions?’ He handed her the bottle. His knuckles jutting out like knots on a tree.

Julie nodded ‘He’ll get his in return?’

‘I’m a man of my word,’ he hissed.

Julie took a deep breath and recited the incantation.

‘Take my dreams, what lies ahead,

take my hopes for his instead.’

Gold mist filled the bottle and a heavy weight settled in the pit of her stomach.

The man placed it on a shelf alongside hundreds of others – all glowing with their own ethereal substance.

He handed her a green one and smiled. ‘I hope he’s worth it.’

    1. Lol! Thank you. Yeah, this one’s a bit elusive…sorry.

      Julie gives up her future dreams (ideal life), in exchange for the dreams of the man she loves.

      He lost them in a bet and is now doomed to a life of working on the Jeremy Kyle show and eating Frosties out of the box…unless Julie can save him ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. That’s taking love potions a lot further. I love it. We all know she’ll regret it eventually. I love the comments, too. ๐Ÿ˜€
