This is my Friday Fictioneers contribution for this week. The challenge is to write a 100-word story using the photo as a prompt. Join the fun at http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/.
“Magic isn’t a toy, you know.” The wizard eyed the boy sternly as they scrambled up the rocky hillside. “You can’t cast spells willy-nilly without consequences.”
“Sorry,” said the boy, his eyes teary.
“Well,” The wizard took pity on his forlorn student. The boy was just learning, after all. “It’s probably nothing. You probably just evaporated a puddle or knocked a bird silly for a day. I’m sure it will be fine.”
They topped the hill. Salt wastes extended beyond the horizon. The thriving village was gone. Not one living thing moved on the desolate plain.
“Dammit!” said the wizard.

Very funny and well done. I wonder if the villagers were wiped out or relocated. What a mess and headache for the poor wizard.
I tend to think they materialized on the other side of the universe and are understandably surly and annoyed by the entire episode. I’m sure some are composing scathing notes to the school as we speak. Thanks for commenting.
🙂 Thanks, Dawn.
Poor wizard – it’s tough being the one that has to put things right, Dammit indeed 🙂
Thanks for commenting. 😀
Bummer! Magic is a dangerous business, isn’t it? 🙂
It certainly was in this case. Thanks for commenting. 😀
He’s a perfect mix of Seamus and Neville. And I could easily imagine that McGonagall would react that way. 🙂
Yep. That’s a perfect description. Thanks for commenting. 😀
Ha. dammit.. better exercise some wand control
This kid may need remediation 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting.
And poor wizard who will have to do all the paperwork 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting. Glad you liked it.
Dammit indeed. Back to school for the boy. Fun.
Thanks for reading and commenting. Yep, this one may need tutoring.
Now that’s an understatement! Great story, Sorchia.
Oh no!Now everyone is in trouble-poor new student-he better be prepared-the wizard will definitely punish him for lesson not learnt ;-)A clever take on the prompt Sorchia -enjoyed it:-)
Yep–Nobody is going to get to bed early on this night 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting. I’m glad you liked it.
Pobody’s nerfect. Fun story. Hey, do you think they could come here and make winter disappear?
At this point I would be willing to risk it!! Thanks for reading and commenting, Rochelle.
I’m still laughing, although they probably aren’t. Good one.
Thanks, Janet. It was a bad day for all concerned 🙂 Thanks for reading and I’m happy you enjoyed it.
Uh Ohh! 😀
yep! Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂
Dammit indeed. Nice one.
🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting, Sandra.
The wizard’s reaction gave me a good chuckle.
Thanks, Adam. I think he is more annoyed by the though of all the paperwork he’s going to have to do as a result. Thanks for commenting. Glad you liked it.
Ooops! Cute story…
