Day 68 100words100days Favourite character from children’s literature- Charlie Bucket: his life after Wonka

Once upon a time, I knew a magician. He could create fantasies out of food and food to fill fantasies, he would dream up the most wondrous concoctions, he would constantly find ways to surprise.

He built an empire and still made sure that he looked after his people. And the people of his people.

He gave his life’s work to someone he placed great faith in, without knowing all that much about him. He travelled through space, and battled Vermicious Knids for that person.

He could not have set a better example.

Today, we lay to rest a friend, a mentor and a master. Willy Wonka, you will be missed.

We will do our best to continue your work and grow your legacy.

And since I am absolutely certain that Mr. Wonka would not have wanted us to mourn his passing but to celebrate his life, I would like to request all of you, Oompa loompas and everyone else, to dry the tears from your eyes, and help yourselves to whatever sweet treats you’d like.

As for me, I think I will nibble on a Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight
