Crimson’s Creative Challenge #138 – The Perfect Town

They lived in the perfect house in the perfect street of a perfect town.

But they were unhappy despite being told they had no reason to be.

Their every want was granted, their every mood satisfied and at the same time they suffered a nagging feeling for more.

They weren’t the only ones. In time they learned of others who experienced similar needs. Their neighbours also had a perfect life. They greeted each other with the epitome of graciousness.

It came as a surprise to everyone when it all blew up.

Contentment had met its demise.

Suddenly long held resentments surfaced, neighbours stopped talking, rumours spread, affairs long suppressed came flooding into the social consciousness. Chaos flourished.

Charlie Fuggs at number 23 Petunia Street wondered why it had taken so long.

As a wizard he liked chaos, he created chaos, he smiled as he watched his despicable neighbours get their long due comeuppance.

    There must be more than a few wizards around the world and none seem to be from Oz.
