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 Devotion.
Here is my offering:
Three growling demons scratched and clawed their way downstairs fighting to be first to sink their teeth into the rare treat. They roared and tumbled into the kitchen pawing at the spread on the table all making mock mewing sounds. Steam rose off of the basket of golden, bumpy drop biscuits with the quirky feline moniker—each about the size of a cat’s noggin—flanked by a crock of softened butter, two bowls of preserves providing a choice of either raspberry or apricot and a plate piled with eight rashers of crisp bacon. Casey Kelley, a single, working mom, shook her head beneath a cloud of bed hair, her blue eyes sparkling with devotion for her gang of four-year-old triplets and whispered to herself through an amused smile, “Pfff…boys.”
