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 Blush.
Here is my offering:
“It’s very nice to meet you, Jill,” he said shaking her hand, “and you must be very excited; when is the baby due?” Without waiting for an answer or permission, he placed a hand on the woman’s protruding belly and bent down with closed eyes to say a blessing of faith and health for the unborn child and it’s mother. He stood and the sting of embarrassment that rose in his face along with a deepening blush was almost immediate. The ring of terror-stricken expressions and shocked silence that greeted him were clues that just maybe Jill wasn’t pregnant.
