too much for beauty. (friday fictioneers).

PHOTO PROMPT © Janet Webb

One dull afternoon, Miranda turns on the television. The Golden Stone advertisement plays. “You are not yet beautiful, but you will be! Limited stocks!”

The next day, Leona joins Miranda on her search for the product. The pharmacy has one stone left. “Rock, paper, scissors: whoever wins will have the stone,” said Miranda.

As usual, Miranda wins. “I don’t need it, anyway,” said Leona, but her infatuation with Michael tells her she does. Miranda swallows the Golden Stone, but her sister plunges a kitchen knife into her throat.

Leona retrieves the blood-covered stone from Miranda’s mouth—at last, she wins.

  1. Oh wow! What a violent end. Not close sisters I guess. I’m pretty sure the first sister would have chocked on the stone, if the second sister hadn’t stabbed her throat. And I believe the second sister will choke on it too. Great piece!

  2. Yikes! I didn’t expect that ending. I like how you’ve shown the girls’ desperate need for a magical product that will bring beauty and ultimately, I guess, love. Very true to life at a certain age.
