A tiny tale

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Deal.




Mellissa sat on the grass bank, her journey brought to a sudden halt as she’d broken down once again.

‘It’s time I got a new one’ she said to herself.

‘This is fantastic value’ said the slick salesman ‘but if you  want something really special and feel like splashing out, this one’s state of the art’.

‘I really like it, how much?’ Melissa enquired.

‘Eleven’ he said, ‘nine’ she replied, ‘ten’ he said thrusting out his hand, ‘deal’ she agreed.

Carbon fibre bristles, an ebony handle, vertical takeoff, and zero to a hundred in three seconds, Melissa was the envy of her fellow witches.

        No, but a century ago when I went on a school trip to visit Roman remains(??) we picked up a guide in Wigan. She told us she was a white witch and had made a spell to keep the rain away. We had fine weather until we deposited her back in Wigan. Then the heavens opened!!

    I like the haggling to reach a fair price for that new broomstick. I didn’t realize she was a witch until the end.

    Very cute, Keith. And educational! I’m embarrassed to say I am not up on my Harry Potter, lol.
    Hm…I could use one of those Super-Nimbus 2000’s 😆
