This is my contribution for this week to Monday’s Finish the Story. It’s hosted each week by Barbara W. Beacham. Every Monday, Barbara supplies a new picture prompt along with the first sentence for the story. The original story to be written should have only 100 to 150 additional words. I’ve bolded the sentence given with the picture prompt.

She lived in a mango tree. At least sometimes it seemed that way. A writer, Marilyn had the little tree house built for her needs.

It was okay until it rained, as the bathroom was in the main house. She needed a covered walkway so she wouldn’t get half drowned during storms.

One day there was a glow, and a beautiful fairy with a wand appeared.

“I’m your fairy godmother,” she said. “Do you desire a handsome prince?”

“No,” Marilyn replied, “I’m married.”

“Now I’m confused,” said the fairy. “Why was I called?”

“Well, I didn’t call you. Unless….”

“Yes,” said the fairy.

“I could use a covered walkway to the house.”

“Is that all? Why?” asked the fairy. “I’m not a builder.”

“There’s no bathroom here and it’s raining.”

“Oh, all right,” said the fairy. She reluctantly waved the wand, and the walkway appeared.

“Thank you,” said Marilyn

“You’re welcome,” said the fairy, and disappeared.

  1. Now that’s what I like…a no-nonsense woman. That’s all a writer needs…a place to write and a covered walkway to get to the bathroom. oh, and maybe a never ending supply of coffee and the odd chocolate or three 😉
