DFF: Once Upon a Time…The End

It has been hard to write lately, with the pain in my foot, but I am doing my best! I hope you enjoy this one, I realized that it is actually a prompt I have already done, but I really like this one.

Today’s Prompt:  “Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.”

Today’s Story:

Once Upon a Time…The End

Once upon a time… fairy tales all began with that. The thing of the matter is this, we need once upon a time! When we stop telling the tales, when we stop sharing the stories, they die. And when stories die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.

It is something long forgotten. Something only kept alive by the LoreKeepers, but when stories die we are lost. Every lost tale takes more of us. Who are we? We are the characters of lost worlds. We live on only in the realms of forgotten lore. You can find us between the pages of the books that were once loved.

If you want a glimmer into our world, take up the pen and arm yourself well! It is through the might of words we can truly live again! Please, find it in you to open the wellspring and allow us life! It is only with your power that we can move from the realms of the forgotten. They shrink a little more every day. So if you could find it in your creative spring to save us… well, then… we would be eternally grateful, and we do not offer thanks willingly.

You can bring us to life, by finding it in you to share our tales and before you are done finishing, The End!

I hope you have enjoyed this!  What story does the prompt share with you? Please let us know in the comments! I love hearing from you!  And if you like what you find here, I am published! You can find more of my tales in these anthologies, MN Emerging Writers and the National Edition!
