"Wishing" you luck.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I liked the viewpoint of the genie, and how he summed up humanity by our flaws and strengths. The first person description was spot on, and I was able to connect with the character. I almost wanted to see more, see how the person opening the bottle would wish, but I also like that you left it up to the reader to think about. I know while reading I started thinking about what things I would wish for.Read the story now
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. The use of description was incredibly vivid, and I absolutely loved the creature. In spite of his cruelty he's just so damn likeable for some reason. At the beginning of the story I didn't see the plot going where you took it, but I was pleasantly surprised! I also have to say that your use of present tense was spot on. I've read a lot of present tense stories, and many read very awkwardly, but not this. This is definitely a story I will remember reading!Read the story now
Great flash fiction!
Great use of description. Awesome story for how short it is! The first line was great, when I read it I had to know what the heck it was about. I love the twisted nature of this piece and the humor of how the killer wants to be something so preposterous as a Princess!Read the story now
