“Did he say how to light?”

“You are the witch, you should know”

“But I tried and tried; even waved my fingers like the wicked witch of the west.”

“Maybe you are trying too hard”

“May be you are right.” Lizzy closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and blew on the candle.

“You did it! You are now a fully capable Witch!”

“Let’s try it again.” Lizzy clapped, grinning ear to ear.

As the kids practiced, downstairs Mrs. Windwhisper was tying a bandage around her husband’s thumb.

“Was it absolutely essential? Flipping the fire-coin through the roof to light your daughter’s  first candle?”

This 100 word Flash Fiction written for Friday Fictioneers challenge dated 2 May 2014. It’s a weekly challenge organized by Rochelle Wisoff.

Initially I thought of posting a poem. But it was written quite sometime back – and a bit longer than 100 word – if you wish you may read it here

You can see the other Fictioneer’s take from the froggy link below –

  8. That was fun, Horus. But I can give you two extra words, as “maybe” is one word. 🙂

  10. Cute story; I love witches! But they must cause typos, here’s a few more:

    “even waved my fingers like (the) wicked witch of the west”
    “downstairs Mrs. Windwhisper was tying (a) bandage around his (her) husband’s thumb.”

    No charge for these!
