Don’t Take Your Onion Farmers For Granted

“Welcome to the Obscure History #Club meeting. Today Margo presents on the #Onion #Insurrection of 1526.” “Thank you, Pete. This is a real-life #fable of underseasoned stew, #defiant farmers, and #optimistic palace cooking staff unfamiliar with how to identify poisonous roots.”

Inheritance

As the #vultures circled the #gallimaufry of Aunt Meg’s estate, Liz found the loose #fireplace brick Aunt Meg had promised would bring an #epiphany. What was wrapped in this #new #babushka, in a dark corner among the #splendour? A brass key and a book: Meg’s Potions and Spells.

Modern Art

“It’s the #unity of humanity’s #vanguard marching at the #winter #solstice through the #isolation of a heavy #snow.” “Is that…a big #bug with doorknobs for its shoulders, knees, and toes?” “Yes, for leaving the door to our original thoughts #ajar.” “It’s #original, for sure.”

Kids These Days

“This is supposed to be a #numinous, somber occasion. Swinging that #skull in such a #lackadaisical way risks #injury. And it’s not a bowling ball!” “I like the #other Advanced Sacrifices teacher better. He says we should rip up the rules and #even have a little fun.”

Hypnotism

“We’ll have to go #deeper into your #memories this time. There was some sort of block behind #the #nudiustertian morning. I think there’s some #burden you don’t want to #dwell on. The emotions you report #dwindle to nothing. So, let’s go back before you saw the bright light…”

Past Battles

I once saw a #dozen figures crowding the #field, #indistinct in the fog. Reenactors of that old battle? I heard a crack and felt something #rupture in my chest. With the smell of gunpowder, the soldiers faded. After this, the #genre of my life had changed. I was haunted now.

(#brieflywrite prompt was “I once saw” and #mentalhealthprompts was “After this.”)

Seven prompts in one tweet! I think this is my personal record. #brieflywrite #whistpr #vss365 #366FF #flexvss #mentalhealthprompts #bravewrite
