|A very short yet somewhat disturbing story that shows how quickly a life can end after one mistake.|
Just A Wish By Lily Haythornthwaite As Mary walked off the schoolyard and past the chain link fence, her thoughts all turned to the problem that plagued my mind. She had lost her CD player. It was only really half her Discman and half her brother's. He was going to flip on her when he finds out. This just wasn’t my day she thought. As she walked past a particular boy that she detested with the hate of 10 people, he yelled at her. “Hey, look, it’s fatty!” he screamed in his horrible screechy voice. His friends snickered with laughter. She turned towards him. He was short and wiry. He had practically no muscles but always wore a white muscle shirt. He was ugly and a complete moron and yet he made fun of her. “Go fuck yourself you short piece of shit” she said to him in a very controlled voice. She continued walking on. She didn’t want to stay around there to long. He yelled his usual insults after Mary. He always did that when someone had insulted them. Always resorted to juvenile names. Mary was walking up the hill, her mind full of hate, sadness and many worries. She kept her eyes down along the ground. She saw a dandelion which she picked. In her mind she wished . . .. I wish for all my troubles to go away . . . She blew lightly on the dandelion and the spores, which stuck out on it, flew off, all of them. She dropped the stem to the ground on walked. She tried to occupy her mind and took a bouncy ball out of her pocket. She bounced it along the sidewalk. Then, the ball bounced off her foot and into the road. She ran after and was struck by a car. She died nearly instantly. And like the dandelion spores, her sprit floated away, away . . . She would have no more worries anymore. Also, I think this rather gruesome story gives new meaning to the phrase Be careful what you wish for . . . Tweet
