The little girl flipped a coin into the well. She made a wish. It was an extravagant wish to be sure, but a good wish.

Suddenly, an elephant ran by, scooping the little girl up with its trunk and placing her on its back. The elephant joined a throng of other animals, running through the streets. A dog leaped into her arms, licking her face. “You’re my friend now,” it told her. “I’m never going to leave you.” 

Glitter started falling, like rain from the sky. Bright sparkles covered the little girl, just the perfect amount. 

People started to pour into the street behind the animals. “Wait!” they cried. “Wait, we want your autograph! Please come back!” 

The elephant took the girl to a park where a dragon and a unicorn were playing. “Goodbye, our princess,” the large beast told her, lifting her off its back and setting her on the ground. 

The unicorn and dragon turned, both bowing their heads to her. The little girl ran up to them and mounted the unicorn. They took off into the sky, the dragon spiraling around them. A rainbow glowed overhead. 

Everything was perfect. Except for one thing. The girl sighed. “Maybe next time,” she muttered.

A cavalcade of dreams come true for a little girl—and yet . . . . Wonderful description of child-approved delights with an intriguing ending. Unique response to the prompt and a truly delightful story!

You have captured what every little girl would wish for- sparkles, a dragon, a unicorn, a flying adventure and fame. I am intrigued by the one thing missing to make this wish perfect.
Welcome to Voice.Club, Ava.

Hello, Ava R. I love your first story. And I am sure my kids will love it too. Like Margarida, I am also wondering about the one thing missing. Do I need to expect the part 2?

Ava, what an enjoyable fantastical story of how a wish may not be all that it seems told from the perspective of a little girl! I can not wait to find out what is missing from the girl’s wish and will be speculating it in my head for quite a bit!

What a wonderful adventure, Ava, even if the little girl didn’t get her complete wish. It had me wishing I was a little girl again. Maybe next time her wish will come true and I look forward with crossed fingers for a second part  ?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance.
