I think Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction challenge will be a weekly post. Write to a one word prompt in five sentences or less. It’s that simple. Here is my offering in response to this week’s prompt, which is “Explosive.”
Sweat dotted Jamie’s forehead like morning dew while thick, warm saliva flooded her mouth—not a good sign. The aroma of dinner cooking in the kitchen caused her stomach to give a roiling lurch and she bolted for the half bath in the front hall. A column of burning liquid roared up her throat before the lid was barely up and hit the water in the bowl with a slap. When the explosive heaves finally subsided, she wiped the chunks and beige splatter from the rim and flushed the whole ugly mess down. Why did she trade for Jessica’s tuna sandwich at school today?
