Sunday Photo Fiction: Everything He Dreams Of 

Mallory looked at the tall cone shaped glass container before him. There was a purple liquid in the bottom and in the middle of the vial small purple droplets were sucked up into the air. 

“Are you sure a few drops is all I need?” Mallory asked Belinda the owner of the magic shop. She had the most gorgeous purple eyes that matched her gray-purple hair. Belinda carried a thin glass wand with her which was beautifully lit from within. 

“Not exactly” Belinda said, “your dreams will come true the way they are meant to come true. Not necessarily in the way you want them to come true. Nobody receives exactly what they want,  if they did there would be many sorry people in life.”

Mallory looked angry. ” I need these specific dreams to come true. It’s the only way Melonie will love me.”

Belinda shook her head at Mallory. ” I can’t make the magic work that way. Besides you don’t know that that is the only way Melonie will love you. You only think so.”

 “Alright, give me five drops of that purple stuff.” Mallory gave Belinda a menacing look. 

So Belinda with her wand siphoned off five drops of purple from the cone shaped beaker and put them into a tiny cup. She told Mallory to drink it carefully and waved her wand over him as she chanted a spell. 

When Belinda looked again there was a hairless ugly cat sitting on her counter meowing. He looked up at her with Mallory’s green eyes. “Did I mention,” Belinda said “that you need a good heart to have your dreams come true. Your’s is the heart of a scaredy-cat and not a pretty one. I guess I’ll have to adopt you out.”

Belinda smiled and put Mallory in the back with the other cats while she helped her next customer.

    1. Haha. Well, thanks. Mallory wasn’t a nice guy. I didn’t picture him as one at least. Then again, maybe Belinda wouldn’t have cared and turns all her customers into cats. Thanks for reading.


  1. I will now think about this story every time I see “the cat lady” at the end of our street. There are always at least three different cats running around her, and she’s even got her hair dyed purple-grey.

    1. Lol. A true hero has courage and would have just gone up to his girl and gotten to know her and seen how they are together. This guy has a bad attitude and no courage. So, he becomes an ugly cat lol.


  2. Funny! I love the use of “scaredy-cat” ..I haven’t heard that term in years. I think Belinda can open up her own cat store pretty soon! But, unfortunately, she wouldn’t have any quality cats to sell to her customers. Wonderful story! 🙂

    1. Oh I am sure. I was thinking of it in away that he doesn’t have a good heart because he lacks courage. And isn’t a very nice guy to begin with. I think she only ends up with ugly cats. My thoughts are that if a person is worthy their wish is granted. Then again, she could be a crazy cat lady. Thanks for reading.


    1. Well, his or the shop owners? I think he wasn’t a good guy and it would have worked if he was. If it her’s well I suppose there are a lot of people who aren’t that great out there. Maybe she got sick of having those types of customers. Thanks for reading Roger.
