Today’s Horoscope: Your prized possession will end up in someone else’s hands.

My 100 Words:

Madeline shook from head to toe as she overturned another piece of furniture.

“It was just here,” she said between choking sobs.

The snot running down her throat made it more difficult to breathe as she tore the sheets from her bed, hoping the horoscope was wrong. The woman in the market had said her most prized possession would end up in someone else’s hands.

That would be near impossible since no one knew about her secret.

Frustrated, she spun around and saw a man in the doorway.

He held her lamp and smiled. “I’m ready for my three wishes.”

    Love it! Love the familiar scene of turning over the entire house looking for something, and the terrible twist as we realize just how much she’s lost.

    HER lamp! Oh I totally need you to write a story about this djinn now 🙂 that was awesome.

  5. Ha! That would be a prized possession and I’d sure be upset to find it in someone else’s hand.
