I have not taken part in that many challenges for the past couple of months or so now. I found myself busy with NaNo preparation and then NaNo itself. Then this week one of the InMon challenge prompts on BeKindRewrite caught my eye and swept me up with its a swirl of inspiration.
If wishes were dragons…
If wishes were dragons, then little boys would climb on scaly backs and fly high into the sky.
They would glide above their friends houses with a beaming smile spreading across their faces as they waved to those below.
For once they would turn up to face their bullies at the school gates. Chasing them for just a block or two before finally letting them go … but only after the dragon singes their pants where their bottoms go.
Then once again they would soar high into the sky just to feel the air through their hair, and see the world shrinking below.
If hopes were unicorns then every little girl would be a princess riding bareback.
They would wear gowns of pink and have sparkly jewels shimmering back at them as they gazed into the mirror.
They would chase away the ogres with no need for a prince.
Then they would ride under rainbows to feel the dancing colours all around and gallop on moonbeams dreamland bound.
