A Little Wish Upon A Star

Tabitha stared at the bathing area in wonder.  Everything glistened and glittered as though she were looking through multiple facets of clear quartz. The tub was made of the same substance as the walls and slowly filled with an aromatic liquid that reminded her of apple pie with cinnamon.

“This is divine,” she moaned as the warm, teal colored liquid surround her body and caressed her flesh. “It’s tingly.”

“This is straight from Lotopian springs located four hundred feet below the surface.  They are called The Tears. I’ll take you to see them when you are strong enough. Is it safe to leave you for a moment while I get you some food?”

“Please. Something to drink too.” Tabitha purred, feeling renewed as the fluid swirled around every crevice of her body as though it had life of its own. It massaged and caressed her, yet not one bubble or jet was visible.  How did it do that?

Seth returned with a tray of blue cheese, red crackers and the synthetic wine.  He set it on the edge of the tub and poured her a glass. “I’m not certain these will be palatable for you. I don’t have any human references.”

“That is the second time you have made a comment about humans.  Is that what your country calls those from the outside?” she asked, accepting the goblet from him. “This glass work is amazing, by the way.”

“It is not glass.  It is made from a diamond.”

“That’s impossible. Diamonds don’t get to be this large.” She lifted the cup to the light, blinking at the incredible refracted rainbows.

“Of course they do. Much larger.  This room is made of a white diamond from the platinum mines.”

“Don’t yank my chain. I’m not an idiot. Mmm, this is pretty good. It almost tastes like a Late Harvest Riesling.”

“What is that?”

“My favorite wine. I had a box in my capsule. How did you get me? I was out of orbit and beyond reach of the space station.”

“We were able to intercept you and extract you from your vessel without difficulty. Here, allow me to do that,” Seth said, wetting her hair.

“Oh my!” She jumped as tiny fingers massaged her scalp.

“Do you like that?” he asked as a smile lit across her face.

“It tickles!”

He chuckled and spilled more fluid over her head before adding a drop of creamy compound.  The scent of vanilla touched with cinnamon filled the air.

“Mmm, now it smells like hot apple cinnamon pie with vanilla ice cream,” she purred.

“May I?” he asked politely, producing a piece of spongy cloth. 

Tabitha silently nodded, her head feeling light and unusually happy. “What the hell is the alcohol content in that wine of yours? I’ve had like three sips and am already feeling tipsy.”


“Yeah. The stuff in the wine that makes you feel relaxed.”

“There is nothing like that in the wine at all. It’s the water.”

“You’re shitting me.”

He wrinkled his forehead and then lifted an eyebrow.

“That means I’m surprised. Is all your water like this?” Tabitha blinked with confusion.

“It is.” Seth offered her another glass with water from an ice pitcher that he ordered. “Try this. Just a little sip at first.”

Tabitha sniffed it and glanced at him. He seemed eager, almost excited, as she experienced this unusual environment. The water touched her lips, bathed her mouth and then she swallowed. Her eyes widened as her mouth came alive with a tingling sensation, like she had sucked on a peppermint. The sensation traveled down her throat and sent delightful shivers through her body. It left her feeling alert and rejuvenated. She downed the glass quickly and held it out for more. After two more glasses, she felt strong enough to run a marathon.

Make A Wish #WIPitUp Wednesday


We have a brand new story to share today. It is tentatively named A Little Wish Upon A Star. It’s hopefully going to zoom through the editing process. Here is a little introduction to our little heroine Tabby. We’ll have much more to share in the near future. Don’t forget to see what the other authors are working on over at the WIP It Up Wednesdays Blog.

A Little Wish Upon A Star


Her hands trembled with hope as she slid the message, written with a purple crayon, into the glass soda bottle that she found outside the steps of the compound. It read:

If there is anybody out there who wants a little girl, please find me and take me home with you. I promise to be good.  Here’s my picture and a piece of my hair to help you know who I am.


Underneath the message, she drew a picture of a cat, whiskers and all.  It was the best one she had drawn and she hoped that someone up there, somewhere in the universe, would find her message and rescue her. She sealed it with a cork that the nice astronaut from NASA gave her and smiled gratefully when he lifted her up to the small pod so that she could put her message inside with her very own, tiny hands.

She smiled at the kind man who squeezed her shoulder with his big hand and together, they watched in silence as the vessel was launched into the star-studded sky.

“If you could touch one of those stars, which one would you chose?” he asked, kneeling by her side.

She pointed to a sparkling violet one in the middle of a dense cluster. “That one. Can you see it?”

“I do. It’s lovely. Why did you chose that one?”

She looked at him with an expression of gravity. “Because it’s purple.  A purple star has to be the very best of all of them.”

“How about you close your eyes and make a wish on it?”

“Let’s both make a wish. I know what mine is gonna be. How about yours?” Tabby asked.

“My wish would be that you will find everything you ever need to make you happy, little one.”

“You could take me home with you,” she suggested eagerly.

He hugged her and sighed. “I wish I could, baby. I truly wish I could. Let’s make our wishes on that star and see what happens, okay?”

Tabby nodded and squeeze her eyes shut, crossing her fingers and sent a wish upon that beautiful purple star with all the hope and power that is found only in the heart of a child…


Coming May 23rd
