Prone to Superstition: #StoryADay May; Day Eighteen

The Prompt:

  • There is a moment in every story where a protagonist has to make a choice: to take up the challenge of the story or to turn away. Everything else flows from that.

  • Today, write a story in which your protagonist makes the other choice.

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

  • architecture

  • anger

  • superstition

  • deptression

  • boomerang

  • dystopia


  • rapacious

  • degradation

  • obstinate

  • seductive

  • loyalty

And now I offer you…

Prone to Superstition

Soval audited the conversation.

He could exonerate this man. However, a conical architecture extended from that point. If he revealed the rapacious degradation of the five humans, their obstinate anger when his kindaughter refused their seductive advances, he jeopardized his loyalty to Vulcan.

Humans were prone to superstition, particularly regarding the unknown. This immature species was still prone to psycho-emotional disorders, including depression. Their language was full of idioms based upon imagery such as “the boomerang effect.” Many subscribed to the illusion of dystopia, rather than accepting the reality of entropy.

Revealing the truth wasn’t logical in this case.

Will Soval change his mind?

How could he exonerate this man?

Where does his “kindaughter” figure into this?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. Well…this was the “Refusal” story, so….I do like it, though, so I think what I’m going to do is have this be more like a “Stalling” moment. Soval is cagy; he’s going to consider all the angles…and he’s not above having his own agenda….not that he does, but he might… =)

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
