Finish It! #30

She was standing there mesmerized but the reflection in the water and what she had just witnessed. So it was true! Only a couple of minutes ago she had watched an old man approach the fountain. His skin was wrinkly, his hands bony and he struggled walking. But his appearance changed massively the moment he had finished drinking the water from the fountain. Suddenly his skin got firmer, his body filled up and his posture got strong again. The old man was gone and instead of him aย  young guy left the area with a spring in his step. She had heard of the fable about the fountain of youth hidden in the back of this valley. She never believed it. But now… Things were different.

Should I or not? Do I want to drink the water or not? She asked herself. Being forever young, was that really what she wanted? Unsure of what to do she looked at the water again, scanning the reflection of her face that once looked so much younger too…

    • So now that I’ve read the other stories written about this prompt I have learned that the little changes that I tweeked were actually to your intro. I am sorry I broke the rules. I told you a long time ago sometimes the prompts are too long for me and I get inspired but then something in what you’ve written kills it… other times they’re too short. I guess my inspirator is picky! LOL. Anyway, I apologize for the changes. But I think you’ll definitely approve of the outcome and it is still spot on to your intention, just not identical. I’ll do better, mommy, I promise. LOL… almost 2 a.m. it sounds like I am getting punchy! Better turn this darn thing off and sleep.

      Thank you for continue to create material to spark our imaginations!
