3rd Place Goes To...


"What's in the jar?" asked the young boy.
His grandfather answered wisely. "You will find out when I leave you."
The boy was scared. "Don't leave me Grandfather!"
The grandfather just smiled and placed a wrinkled hand one top of the young one. "Don't worry Simeon, we won't be separated forever." Simeon's eyes drifted up to the jar.
"No Grandfather, we won't!"
One year later.
Simeon reached up and grabbed the jar off the shelf. He remembered the conversation he had with Grandfather. After tucking the jar under his arm, he went outside and sat on the grass. Curiosity got the best of him, so he opened the jar. When he opened the jar there was a tiny flame at the bottom. He felt a flicker of hope. As most young boys would do, he stuck his hand into the jar. The flame was gone! In its place was a blue light; he had an idea! Quickly he raced inside and got a lighter. He stuck it in the bottom and turned it on. No luck. The light in the jar glowed an eerie green. Simeon remembered that color. When ever things didn't go the right way in Grandfather's house, like breaking a vase, flooding the kitchen, making a pool in the front yard, the jar would glow that green color. But when things went right or he had an idea, whether good or bad, it would glow blue. Simeon realized what it was. It was a thought jar. But where did it come from?
