The talented Ms. Charli Mills is at it again, this time asking anyone who visits https://carrotranch.com to write a 99 word story featuring a wishing star. Follows is my offering.
My Wishing Star
Written by Kerry E.B. Black
Storms crowd the night sky, eager to take in the splendor of my wishing star. I imagine them with outstretched Sirius arms clutching pens and pads to collect her autograph, and she’d smile a cool and radiant dismissal. She has work this evening, as always. No time to cavort. She shines in the work, glorious minion of the heavens. She waves them away to peek upon her awaiting penitents. I stand among them, whispering my wishes as fervently as prayers. She collects them in shimmers and sigh and keeps them with ancestral wisdom until they are every one fulfilled.
