100 Word Challenge: Red Box

This weeks 100 Word Challenge for Grown-ups hosted at Julia’s Place, is a topical prompt, where you can but don’t have to use the words of the prompt. Be sure to go by and see what others have made of this week’s prompt. I openly admit that my idea is not a new one, but i had fun with it nonetheless.

The Prompt: ...the red box

My entry: Wish Fulfillment, 101 words.


“And behind curtain three is… The Red Box!”

The audience roared.

Sandra, the lucky contestant, jumped up and down, screeching in joy. MC walked her over to the large red box, center stage.

“It’s your choice, Sandra.” he said. “Keep the eight million dollars you’ve won, or trade it all for your Ultimate Wish.”

“My wish!” she squealed. The audience cheered.

“I wish my husband back to life!”

Hushed silence.

The box fell open. Sandra’s husband stood there, alive!  Bits of decomposing flesh dangled from his face with its wide lipless grin.

Sandra screamed. The audience went wild.

Another wish fulfilled.
