WonHundred Word Wednesday

It's that time again :) Here's the prompt:

Today's Horoscope: Your Prized Possession Will End Up In Someone Else's Hands

Here's my take:

I left seven years ago, ready to conquer the world and find love. Now I was home, world conquered but no love. At least the Chinese food was good. I cracked open the fortune cookie. "Today's Horoscope: Your prized possession will end up in someone else's hands."
Awesome. Someone would steal my stuff.
"Gwendylyn?" That you?"
Jack, one of my favorite people from high school. I hadn't seen him in years.
"Hey! How've you been? Can I join you?"
We spent the day together. By that evening, my horoscope had come true. My prized possession--my heart--was in his hands.

Now see how everyone else did it!

  1. Cute! ^_^ I want to know in what way she conquered the world. I feel like it's an expression, but I can't help imagining her as the all-powerful overlord.

    1. Well...since this is based on a true story, I can tell you ;) She went out, lived on her own, faced some fears, and conquered her demons, and then she came home.

  2. Awww! :) This just made me smile. I loved the line "Awesome. Someone would steal my stuff." That made me laugh.

  3. Love how it all tied together, beginning to end all in 100 little words.
