August 23- Flash Fiction – Magic

Charli’s prompt this week:

August 23, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes magic. It can be a supernatural force, a moment or idea, or use it as a verb. Go where the prompt leads.

Sleight Fright

“Think of a name.”
Deanna held her chosen name tightly in her mind and nodded.
“Think of an object related to that name.”
She self-consciously touched her wrist, where her watch was.
Except it wasn’t there.
Where was it? It was the only thing she had left of him.
“I believe you were thinking of Peter, and his black diver’s watch, am I right?”
The magician held out a watch.
Sleight of hand or magic, she didn’t know, but Deanna didn’t wait to find out. She rushed to the front, snatched the watch and rushed out of the building.

    A well played trick, and yet a deeply felt response. Good contrast between the action and emotion, Ritu!

    A magician removed my watch once and I didn’t even notice. 🙂

    A magician on steroids, Ritu. Not only snatches her watch but her thoughts, too! Well done.

    Magicians always freak me out. They seem to travel an invisible line, one between light and darkness!

    Ah, I might just react the same way if a magician took my watch. Great piece, Ritu.
