Scribe’s Cave Picture Prompt #43

Many a tale has been told about the extinguishing of a sun and the resulting horror on the worlds within a system. However, real life has offered horror without the winking out of our favorite star. Consider rickets, a Vitamin D deficiency that afflicts children. This week’s photo offers ehem…one solution.

Or is there more to be told regarding this photo?

  • Word limit: keep it between 50-200 words
  • If your flash has adult content, be sure to indicate such so that we can warn our more tender-aged readers
  • Utilize the Linky below the image
