There was a magician on the sidewalk. He called himself ‘Wonderful Williams The Weather Wizard.’

He was astonishing. He wowed the crowds with illusions and magic tricks that the world has never witnessed before. He summoned miniature tornadoes and air sprites. He made soft fluffy clouds form around himself and then he vanished, only to then materialize from thin air afterwards. The crowd were enthralled and thoroughly entertained. They were calling him a genius for inventing such tricks.

But of course, I knew they were not just merely tricks. They were real.

I was watching him from opposite the road, disguised as a gardener watering the plants. If anyone looked closely, they would notice the water emerging from my fingertips, not the hose.

He was one of us, I’m certain of it.

I raised my head to the sky and focused, making the rainbow appear. Soon, they will be here to collect him.

  1. No idea why, but this reminds me of a fiction series that I am writing right now on my blog. Though I am not good at all in writing fiction, I thought it will give my blog a bit of variety. Nice short story there by the way! Love the alliteration in the title.

      1. It’s called “A Random Medley”, and it was initially meant to just answer a prompt on the Writing101 course, so it still looks a little sketchy. I have properly drafted out how the remaining story should go already, but haven’t had the time to write them out. And oh, there are a lot of references to musicals, which explains the title.

    Lovely twist to the prompt – fun and magickal – in an intriguing and wonderful way – with just a hint of enough “blackness” – storm clouds on the horizon? XD
