Friday Flash: As a Cloud

This week’s Friday flash (or Friday drabble, as it were) is based on this photo from wiki commons. It’s clouds and I started to think, what sort of

creatures live up there?

The wizard smirked. I wanted to hurt him. Wanted it so badly, I could almost feel his bones breaking under my hands.

Instead, I stood still. The cell’s magical barrier was strong, but I would free myself.

Wizards couldn’t understand a dijnn’s magic. We were as clouds. If they understood, this cell would be underground.

The wizard left and night fell. Starlight seeped into my skin and I shimmered with its power. I studied my hands. When they glowed sliver, I punched the magic barrier above me. Once, twice.

The hole’s edges were jagged. Like a cloud, I floated free.
