Well done to all who entered PP#1. They were very enjoyable to read ... and here is our pick of the day. Some other great entries in the comment box below :)
'Careful what you wish for!' warned my granny, as she left me sulking in my room.
It wasn't fair. It was my life, she couldn't tell me what to wish for!
I was frustrated and not thinking right. That's when I said it. 'I don't regret what I said. I wish I didn't have to live with my granny, I wish I could live by myself!'
Suddenly, there was a blackout. And when I woke up 10 minutes later, I was confused.
'Granny?' I yelled, starting to worry.
She wasn't there. Her stuff was gone and the smell of her perfume no longer lingered in the air.
Every single trace of her was gone, and all that was left were her words echoing in my head: 'Be careful what you wish for!'
