I originally wrote this flash fiction story, The Magic Airplane, for a contest with a prompt in 2018, I think. Dang if I can remember the prompt, but I know there was an airplane involved. There were other elements involved in the prompt as well, but I’m not sure what they were. In any case, it didn’t win the competition and it’s been edited a time or two since then. This is the first time it’s been published. Thank you to The Sad Girls Literary Book Club for giving it a home!
In this very short story, little Amelia is in a desperate rush to finish her airplane to activate the magic that will take her to her daddy, because “Her Daddy had promised her the airplane would fly and that she would be able to use it any time she liked to fly to him.”
