seeds

A little seed, planted in the corner of the garden. A sunflower seed, even. Hope. Brightness. Happiness. Maybe it would bring some peace to this sullen little corner of the world. Maybe it wasn’t enough to hope that a sunflower could fix anything. After all, these people had been forsaken for so long that most of the city forgot anyone still lived in this dump. But with the seed came color. And, along with that color came new life–and new hope. Funny what just a little seed can do to turn a life around. I certainly hoped that it would be enough.

“Ready as I’ll ever be. Let’s get this over with.”
I picked up the cup, dirty fingers sweating, and took a huge gulp.
It tasted like the worst mixture of mud, Pepto-Bismol, and stale gummi bears. I forced down the rest of the potion,my throat protesting.
And suddenly, my body felt wispy. I wasn’t there anymore. My body seemed to be disconnected, for the briefest of seconds. Then it reformed. Bam. I blinked my eyes. Something didn’t feel right. The potion must be working.
