Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz (the blue frog) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

The wonky wand
The fairy’s name was Gwendolen. She was dumpy, her iridescent wings looked clumsy, and the star on her wand flickered.
“Oh bugger!” she said, “I’m stuck.” She glared at me. “As long as you’re watching, I can’t leave.”
I looked away.
“And I must recharge my wand. Please wish for something you want really badly.”
I wished, and felt a surge of energy, tingling like intense pins and needles.
“Wow!” I exclaimed.
Gwendolen had gone. I strolled to the hotel bar.
“Hi! Are you Fiona?”
He was tall, with a warm smile.
“Good luck!” Gwendolen’s voice whispered faintly in my imagination.
