FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER
WEEK #8 – 2016
The opening sentence for the February 19th Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: “There it was. You could see the corner of the folded yellowed parchment sticking out of the torn lining of the battered book.”
“There it was. You could see the corner of the folded yellowed parchment sticking out of the torn lining of the battered book.”
I carefully eased the paper out and held it gently in my hands.
Much to my amazement, the paper felt like velvet. I could not resist rubbing my fingers across it.
Suddenly, I was standing in a beautiful garden. The flowers were huge and the colors were very bright.
I heard a voice in my ears. It said to give the book to the young man, but I did not see a man, young or old!
I glanced over my shoulder and standing just a few feet from me was a young man dressed in purple. He had a puzzled expression on his face.
“I’ve been searching for a book and I see you may have found it. Is the title of that book Royal Path?” he asked.
I replied, “yes, and I believe I am to give it to you.”
He was so delighted!
“Now, I can follow through with my Royal duties,” he said with excitement.
As I handed him the book, I saw a vision of a King.
I had returned to where I once stood and my hands no longer held the book, but I was wearing a gold ring with a seal on it. The words on the seal were…Royal Gift.
