Dream come true



“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” ― Paulo CoelhoAlchemist
(A 33 word writing prompt from Trifecta)



Life was certainly interesting now, I thought, trembling in my brand new flesh, feeling the world for the first time.  I looked down at my sleeping creator dreading my dissolution when he woke

  16. Congratulations on your win! I see the perspective of your dream this time which is quite unique and fascinating. Wish I had grasped it the first time around. Sometimes my brain needs a slap to the forehead. An inside out...or outside in worldview. Awesome!
