Emancipation

This is a weekly writing prompt given by Magpie Tales.   I decided to go a little dark this week.  Not sure if the changing seasons or spooky movies i have been watching have been affecting my brain!  Hopefully this sends a chill or two...



Dere Diare,
         
           Momma opened the door in the sky today.  She says it is time to leave Playland "for good."  i asked Momma what "for good" means and she says "for ever and ever."  
            Momma says we cant take Elise's Heavon Box with us when we go to Skyworld.  She has to stay sleepng in her Heavon Box in Playland.  i snuck when Momma wasn't looking and drew a picture of us on the side of Elise's Heavon Box in case she ever wakes up.  So she can find us in Skyworld.  Henry says she won't never wake up, she has been sleepng since my last birthday day.  And that was when i couldnt even reach the sink faucet without Mr. Bucket.  I wish we could take Mr. Bucket too.
            Henry says he is excited to go, that in Skyworld there are sooooo many antfriends  that brothurs dont even have to fight over them.  i wonder how the brothers in Skyworld remember their antfriends names if there are so many.  i think Henry is telling fibs again.   
            Momma says we have to leave PLayland because the Tall Man went to  his own Heavon Box and we wont see him no more.  He wont bring us orange crackers or crayons or Mrs. Bucket to trade for Mr. Bucket.  Diare do you think they have orange crackers in Skyworld? Henry says they have orange crackers in Skyworld.  I hope so cuz i am on wrapper 799 and i would be sad if i couldnt get another wrapper to make 800.  I think im gonna leave my collection of wrappers under Elise's Heavon Box.  That way she will still have something to play with in Playland if she ever comes out.
           I am scarred Diare.  What if lose Momma or Henry out in Skyworld?  Sometimes Playland seems big with 3 people, and Momma says there are sooooooo many people out in Skyworld we gotta hold hands "AT ALL TIMES."  I asked Momma what "at all times" means and she said "for ever and ever."
           When i look out the door Momma opened today, my eyes cry because they hurt. Do you think they will hurt all the time Diare?
          Be brave Diare.  If you get lonely you can talk to my antfriends (and Henrys too), but Pete and Smoky and Lightball can be mean so stay away from them.
           Love,
Charley

What wonderful, strange ideas! And what an amazing name - Diare. At first I thought you had made a typo in "Diary". Very, very good!

Dark indeed, yet in a child's mind scarred....

Nicely written, just in time for a spooky month in Skyland.

This was really good in a weird sort of compulsive way, it drew you in and wrapped itself around you. That's good writing! ;-)

Yes, you do write like Stephen King! I read this with a child's voice for added chill!

I think I'll start my own Heavon Box for when I go to Skyland.
