Here is this week’s prompt, copyright Jennifer Pendergast . . .
and this is my story . . .
‘Take my hand,’ you say. ‘Come with me on a journey to the stars. We could reach the ends of the Universe, you and I; wonder at things hitherto unseen. No boundaries to hold us back.’
I smile up at your handsome face; the fire that burns in your eyes. You want me, it’s clear, though you hardly know me at all.
You reach out your hand, unfurl your fingers in a gesture of love. I recoil from the small white package so tenderly cradled mere moments ago. I shake my head and turn away from your proffered hand.
