WonHundred Word Wednesday: Never Poor Again

It's Wednesday folks! Here's this week's flash fiction.

The prompt:  She had found something that would mean she'd never be poor again - but there was a catch

My story:

I rolled the gold coin in my fingers, wondering if the old man was trustworthy.

“Can I try?” I asked.

“Of course,” he replied, his voice frail.

I placed the coin in my pocket, waited ten seconds and retrieved it, only to find it had duplicated. My heart skipped, contemplating the life I’d lead with an endless supply of gold.

“How does this work?” I asked in amazement.

“If you like it, you can have it… for a price.”

My eyes met his, “Anything.”

As he snapped his fingers, shackles appeared on my wrists.

He barked a laugh, “Your freedom!”
