Weekend Writing Prompt #38 – Boundary


Prose Challenge – Write a story in 150 words or less about a boundary that opens with the following:

When I saw it, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  It was all true.

There it was, every story I had been told, as a child was true. The boundary was a wall made solely of liquorice allsorts.

They were packed together in a random fashion, the boundary wall stretching as far as the eye could see.

How it came to be was a mystery but you had the impression it wasn’t a wall to be trifled with. Within a foot of the wall you experienced a magnetic force, not drawing you in but rather repealing you from it.

My mate Charlie fought against it and snatched a delicious looking block, green with rich liquorice layers, it was the last thing he ever did. His look of satisfaction turned to horror in an instant.

I made a cairn of stones to remember where Charlie was now. He replaced the block he stole, and like every other block fitted seamlessly into place.

    Poor Charlie, that’s a terrible way to go! Better not let Donald T know about the wall, he’d be searching for the builders 😀

    Sounds like it’s a wall that Donald Trump might want to have constructed on the border between the US and Mexico!
