A drabble is a short work of fiction of precisely one hundred words in length. Please stick around for 30 seconds and let me know you were here.

Simone struggles with every day living because she’s been born with a ‘so called’ gift.

A burden more like it, she thinks to herself.

Simone can merge her consciousness into each of the alternate realities that she lives consecutively.

Now, wouldn’t that be fun? No, that’s when the struggle becomes real.

In one reality she’s cursed as a fake, a charlatan.

In another, she’s famous for her shrewdness and prophetic gifts, which enables her to foretell the future.

Sadly, in a third reality she’s burned alive as a witch, causing her to slowly fade from existence, as her consciousness dies.

I’m tagging a talented writer friend, Eko B, who also writes awesome Drabbles. Feel free to check them out.

If you like this Drabble, you would love my latest book, published on 30 May 2024.
