The gypsy had been selling pegs at the door and Rupert had no time for beggars.
‘Sod off,’ he said.
‘Please sir,’ she croaked. ‘Spare a coin for an old woman. I’ll grant you a wish!’
‘Yeah, right, ‘ he scoffed.
Tossing a penny into the snow, he said ‘I wish it snows every day so that the likes of you leave me alone!’
Next morning he pulled back the curtains to see a large eyeball peering in at him.
WTH?
‘I can’t touch you now!’ The old woman cackled. ‘I’ve trapped you all inside a snow globe!’

  1. Watch what you wish for, especially if you’re a mean-spirited bastard, and it’s a gypsy who’s offering the wish 🙂

  2. Dear Pensitivity,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. Guess he should’ve been more careful what he wished for. Clever story…100 words packed into a snow globe. 😀

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, Pensivity! And what a great way to make an entrance. Wonderful fairy tale!

  4. James says:

    Not quite what I thought would happen. I imagined a world where it never stopped snowing and we entered another ice age.

  5. Rommy says:

    I love fairy tales! This made me giggle.

  6. Beware of cackling crones too quick to grant wishes.

    The huge eyeball caught me by surprise. You should’ve heard my giggle.

    As a child in the 1950s I often came across traditional gypsy caravans usually in those days hidden in woods. Respecting them was driven into me, your story tells me why.

  9. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover says:

    Ha, revenge is sweet. Well done.

    Never a smart thing to tick off a beggar/Witch. Now everyone’s stuck in a snow globe thanks to him. 🙂
