Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: Another World


” Jessica look-up at the windmill,” Caleb yelled pointing above their house.

“I’m looking, where is it?” Jessica said seeing nothing.

“How can you not see it?” Caleb asked. “The windmills gigantic.”

Caleb grabbed his big-sister’s hand: “We’re going to go inside the windmill Jessica, then you’ll see it’s real.” Jessica gave Caleb a baffled look as he appeared to be miming opening a heavy door. 

Then something strange happened, Jessica was able to see what was behind the door. To both siblings delight, the windmill contained another world. There were shops selling odd wares and clothing, apothecaries selling elixirs, and coffee shops filled with human-like creatures. These human-like creatures had eyes and hair in every colour of the rainbow.

A woman with purple eyes peered at Jessica and Caleb. She smiled at the children.”Welcome, I’m Viola, you must be the new children –the humans gifted with magic. Come I will take you to your new home. Your education has begun.” 

Jessica and Caleb followed Viola; they never looked back.

    1. Yes, I suppose that would be hard. I haven’t decided though if they had parents or if they were good parents. I guess in keeping with the theme, they probably were raised by mean relatives such as in Harry Potter lol.

  1. Caleb saw something special (his gifted ability) about the windmill and he was right…a very fascinating place inside. Jessica must have felt it also since neither of them felt the need to look back. I think they knew right away that life would be better there. Children love fantasy and to actually be in one must have felt wonderful. A very good story.
