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 Candidate.

“It’s okay, Drew, I’ll be out in a minute after I finish gathering myself.” But then the candidate, pale and wide-eyed, continued, “I never expected we’d win; what do we do now?”
