This was written for Trifecta’s weekend challenge, which was to write 33 words about three wishes that come at a high price to the wisher, in the spirit of The Monkey’s Paw by W.W. Jacobs. This story continues the whole grand Fillmore/Farthington/Winifred story arc. Enjoy!

She’d wished for a pony. She had a pale horse. She’d wished not to be a minion. She was Death, destroyer of worlds. She’d wished for happiness…that, Winifred thought, would come. Eventually.  Right?

    Heh. I love this.

  3. RIGHT!

  4. Of course the wish for happiness would be granted as expected 🙂

  5. This was one of your best, man! Thanks for writing it!

  6. Aw. That’s wistful and really kind of lovely in the middle of the comedy.
