Genre – Fantasy Fiction
Rubin the storyteller was back from another “adventure”. He flicked his wand and water dragons spewed fireworks in the sky. The river became a reflection of the illumination above.
Rubin always lied. Even the children knew it. He talked of self propelled chariots with only wheels, of humans who were crazy about “paper” – they exchanged it for food, for clothes, they even worked for it.
Today he was telling about something called “cinema” – some kind of amusement humans indulged in. He said dragons were considered fearful and destructive.
Rubin was a liar, but he had imagination, impressive fire-tricks too.

The Prompt for this week came from Lora. Thanks for the prompt Lora. It’s a beautiful grand picture I wish I could do more justice to, but since Rochelle asked us to mention genres of the stories, I thought it was a good idea to actually explore different genres that I seldom write about. (Honestly, I hardly ever think of what genre my story falls in. This is a brilliant way of bringing some focus and discipline in my aimless writing. Thanks again Rochelle!) So this one was to strictly stick to the genre I wanted to write about this week.
