girlieontheedge1 prompt is “stable” for her 6 sentence story writing challenge. This opens every Thursday.
Part Fiction & part reality title:
No longer stable in desire.
When I was a very young girl, I loved horses.
I wished I owned one.
When I was an adult, I visited India and saw horses in living rooms.
Owners kept their steeds inside their houses in lieu of a stable because this was cheaper.
I could fulfill my fantasy to own a horse affordably if I lived in India where a horse need not be kept in a stable.
But I’ve grown up and no longer stable in desire to own a horse.
