Dream Car

Ever since she was a child, Misu loved cars.

She knew the names of all the models.

She always said, "When I grow up, I will have the best car in the city!"

Some relatives laughed. 

They reminded her how poor she and her family was. 
"You don’t even have a decent dress!"

Misu had sensed embarrassment for daring to dream to own her car. 
That was two decades ago. 
Misu now drives the best car in the world.
She gives talks about her book- 'The Power of a Dream'. 

Guess who cheer the loudest in the audience?

Her parents!

100 Words story for Friday Fictioneers

Do you believe in the power of a dream? Do dreams come true?
Please share in the comments below.


  1. Perhaps dreams don't come true unless they come true for everybody. I guess it depends what we dream

  2. Dear Anita,

    Dreams can be powerful if the dreamer is driven to act on them. Good one.



  3. I don't think dreams come true, they are a spark of inspiration. Goals, smart choices, sacrifice and hard work are the key to success. Perhaps I am splitting hairs lol.

    I like the message though.

  4. I seldom dream,I don't know why.I am always engrossed in the here and now.
    Very dull,no?

  5. Sometimes you need to believe and things will come your way

  6. Good for her for not giving up on her dreams.

  7. You've got to dream first for it to come true later, without dreams we are nothing. Nice one Anita.

  8. A wonderful testament to having a dream and not letting others interfere with it. Her parents must be so proud of her <3

  9. Dreams sometimes come true as do nightmares. Good for her though!

  10. Without hopes and dreams, life would be drudgery. I'm still, at my advanced age, clinging to my dreams :)

  11. The longer I live, the more I feel that living reflectively in the moment is the better choice. I agree that dreams have power when they motivate someone to action, but all too often - and like Misu - the dream is maya, illusion. She will never be satisfied with the best car in the world, because right now in Sweden a Russian oligarch is planning a better car - and only one will be manufactured...


Your words mean a lot to me.
