The Fortune Cookie

Fortune Cookie fortuneFortune cookies.  Everyone looks forward to cracking that cookie open and seeing what their fortune is.  Often, these little strips don’t even provide a fortune, rather some silly saying.  What would happen if there was something magical about the fortune?  What if it really came true?  Today, write a little Flashy Fiction in which the fortune takes hold.  Maybe the recipient embraces the fortune and kind of helps it happen.  Maybe they fight it, but it happens anyway.

Write something and share it!

    In others,
    not so much.
    I suppose that’s just the way
    the cookie crumbles.

She could hear the “L” approaching and hurried the final steps, not wanting to miss the last train…
