The word of the week is “Luck”. Once again, I’m going to participate with a little fiction. It’s way more fun than reality. Plus, paranormal!
Some say luck was on my side. I don’t look at it that way. The fire that erased my family five years ago, left me haunted and deeply scarred.
The fire didn’t even touch my room, it was left like a shrine to the life I once had. Not a drop of smoke snuck under the crack in my door. I slept, undisturbed, while my family burned alive.
“Unexplained phenomenon”, was what the investigators called it. “Divine interception”, my foster mother swears.
I’m called Lucky Penny. But, I now know the truth and it wasn’t luck. Guardian angels are real.
Well done! Concise. A young girl’s history in so few words. Nice piece!
