#5MinuteFiction – Week 46

Hair-O-The-Genie 

It was a rather amazing thing to find under the bottle cap. I had been walking along the beach to clear my head, well hangover really. It was a bit of a fuzzy night and I woke up alone although I could have sworn that someone had been in my bed at one time. Anyway I was walking along the beach, clearing my brain and failing at it and seriously contemplating a little Hair-O-The-Dog when I kicked a bottle.

I’m not normally one to pick up stray bottles of booze off the ground but I rationalized it as a sign that Hair-O-The-Dog was better than fresh air. Besides, the bottle was full and the seal was tight. Rum too, real Jamaican Rum.

I opened it up and smelled the cap. Already my head began to clear, the musty sweet smell of cane sugar, the rememberances of a warm belly and a serene brain. I looked inside the cap.

“Winner! See back for details.” It said.

Odd, I don’t recall any booze bottles having contests before.

I took my finger nails and popped out the rubber.

“Three Free Wishes, redeem at once.” You’ve got to be kidding me. This day was going to look up after all.

Finalist
