One Down

by Alexandra Erin


I had wrote my wish down to avoid mistakes. So, when I found myself on an arid plain, I tried explaining that the phrase “just desert” was not an ironic typo; “desert” being what one deserves.

The genie claims he knew that.

I think he’s managed to be both pedantic and ignorant.

Two wishes left.

Your short stories are so great!

One comment though - "I had wrote" strikes me funny... "I had written" maybe? Or "I wrote"?

The "had" throws off the meter of the sentence to me....

Anyway - long time reader of Tales of Mu and enjoying all your other efforts as well! Keep it up!
