The water that once turned the wheel was gone but she could hear a stream gurgle in the distance. The hut looked deserted and she was too tired to think of whom it might belong to. It was the third day since she had escaped from the prisons. Sarah would have been happy to exchange lives with anyone after what she had been through.
Myrah came into the hut when the sun set. She had heard Sarah’s thoughts and was happy to find her new host asleep. Chanting the familiar incantation she felt herself make the girl’s body her own.

Wooo Girl, You scared me there! an amazing twist to an interesting story. I like your blog and style of writing. will stay connected for more.
thank you 🙂
Thanks for visiting. Love your story, great use of the photo prompt
Thank you for the encouragement 🙂
I guess that will teach her to be careful what she thinks. But wait! Her thoughts will be Myrah’s now. Good job. I’m always glad once I get mine done and can start reading everyone else’s without undue influence. 🙂
Just a small thing–“girl’s” for the singular possessive, not “girls'”.
Thanks for the edit. I keep getting confused by it.
I finished writing my story early this time and was waiting for the others to come up so I could go read. 🙂 On my way now..
my thoughts are like sustainabilitea except now I’m afraid to think them. Ha.
Enjoyed as usual. Randy
Thanks Randy. Can’t wait to read yours.
Nice tale of possession and thought interception. Very creative.
Thought provoking “possession” piece. Did you mean prison or prisons? Wondered about that. No matter. Interesting take.
I liked the impersonal way the alter ego took possession; it would have been so easy to make it look like a hostile take-over rather than a very simple process of occupation. Nicely done.
Thank you Sandra
Ah to be oneself in prison or to be someone else? I would rather have my own thoughts.
Make sure you never make wishes in empty houses then. 😉
I liked the way you let us know the thoughts of both Sarah and Myra. Intriguing…possessive even.
Thank you Rochelle
Great how you introduced the two characters as separate and then ending with that revelation…
i am curious about Myra… I hope you will write a story about her.
If I had a superpower it would be the ability to read minds. 🙂
too scary…. what if everyone didn’t like you?
much safer to be a guy and never get past the x-ray eyes option.
I hadn’t thought of that.. that would really be sad.
now if you were an empath, that could infuse calm and hope into others, that would be good.
That sounds like a positive superpower!
Very inventive! I did not see that ending coming. Outstanding story.
Thank you Jan
Those creepy stone cottages….nothing good can ever come from them 😉 nice job
I initially found it looking quite innocent but then first impressions can be wrong 😉
Whoa! You should be careful when you say “happy to exchange lives with anyone”… Point taken! 🙂
Oh dear, is that really what she would have wanted. Note to self, be more careful of what I think in future. 🙂
chills! good one
Out of the frying pan and into . . . well, nowhere! Spooky story, and well-crafted. 🙂

Beautiful. Haunting. Amazing. That about sums it up!! 🙂
Love supernatural stories!
