Well it’s Wednesday and that could only mean one thing… that it’s 100 word Friday. Last week I was busy with life. This week I have a glass of red wine in my hand and the keyboards under the touch of my fingers. Ohhh the joy. I added last week’s prompt into this post and made another image of this week’s prompt. That’s three for one if you are following me. Oh Mirror Mirror!
Once again Thanks to Rochelle Winsoff Fields. All links can be found here.
This week’s Prompt.
The sterile shine blinds anyone who looks into the floorboards. Twenty years ago Joey’s girlfriend Mary took her life. She cut her throat with a spoon she started sharpening on Thanksgiving. Mary committed suicide on Christmas morning outside of room 4k. Every morning Joey the Janitor polishes the floor hoping to see her face in the mirror like shine of the floorboards. It is believed that on Christmas Eve night if you say “Mary Christmas” three times while looking into the reflection of the floorboards she will appear and take the life of a young man. Have a Mary Christmas!
Now for something from the gut…….and a little more my style.
Looking forward I saw the past, interchanging links on a bracelet. Spaghetti string, the infinity mirror, some guy on NCIS and myself. Bright and shining with two rooms to take. I couldn’t help but ask “Where the fuck is door number three?” Mirror, Mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all? Repeat through the shadows, caught in the dark spaces between the floorboards. The bright light reflection kept coming back. As if there was more to it and is if there was one more than two choices. The future or the past? Here was the present.
