Five Sentence Fiction — Perserverance

Tuesday is when I tackle some Five Sentence Fiction. Feel free to take Lillie McFerrin’s challenge to write a five sentence story based on a single word prompt. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just used for direction. This week’s word is Perseverance.

Here is my offering:

“Mr. Wilkerson, are you awake?” the nurse asked loudly. “We need to get a little blood from you this morning. This is Karen, she’s an intern from the university, and will be doing the honors.” He smiled at the young, blonde girl in purple scrubs who was being introduced, she was very cute.  However, the grin faded when he saw that she was holding a tray piled with fresh hypodermic needles…

Got five sentences? Share them!

  1. Ouch! Well at least she’s come prepared for failure. Nice one.

  2. Lol. I remember learning blood draws as a new nurse. It only gets better with practice.

  3. Great introduction to a story! I want to read more! I loved the way you integrated dialogue and brought the characters to life with it. That poor guy!

  4. I could see his smile fade…let’s hope she’s a fast learner!

  5. An ever-so-slightly disturbing finish – one that makes you want more. Purpose served!
