Control (Daily Prompt)


If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?” – Daily Prompt


The technology today was more advanced than before. I could slow down an action through this remote control the Government provided. One must be in a legal age before you could have it. I was fifteen, but I already had mine. Thanks to my Dad, who was working in the Government.

I sat on my favorite space. It was autumn already. The sun above was giving a crisp color to the nature below it. It was beautiful; everything seemed to have a higher contrast. It was peaceful than my family’s quarrel or my friends’ selfishness and egos.

The siren wailed and the bullet train paced forward. It was fast, too fast for my taste. I click the “Slow Down” button on my remote control and everything went in slow-motion. I immediately looked outside the train’s window.

It was beautiful; really beautiful. I could see every detail of the nature. I could feel the calmness and the real art of life. It was paradise, and, if given the chance, I would trade my reality for this.
