This weeks phrase:I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, The Prisoner of Azkaban

Preston saw the man sitting alone on the bench and turned to Alvin, “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good. Let’s have a little fun.”

He waved his hand and a chanted. Storm clouds filled the sky, rain fell, the river swelled, and the shore flooded. But the man never moved. He lowered his head and spoke softly.

“What the—?”

Before Preston finished, the man stood. The skies cleared and the water receded. Both boys stood, dumbfounded. He transformed before them into the great wizard, Eldron.

In a low voice he said, “I’m terribly disappointed in each of you. For this you shall be punished.” Another wave of his hand and Preston and Alvin were transported to a cell where their magic was useless.

Eldron entered and stared at the boys.

“It was just a joke. We meant no harm,” Preston said.

“Gentlemen, actions have consequences.”

This story was written for the 50 word Thursday challenge, this week hosted by Teresa , The Haunted Wordsmith.
