Over to Charli for this week’s challenge:
February 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a unicorn. It can be realistic or fantastical. Go where the prompt leads.
He was her friend and loyal companion.
But he was the last of his kind, as was she.
She could not bear the thought of him dying, but his time was near and he wanted to give her one final gift before departing this world for the next.
She had wanted to be human, have legs rather than a fish tail, to walk among men and women alike.
As she nuzzled against him for the last time, he granted her wish.
She laid him gently in the sand and stood to watch the waves claim his body in farewell.
