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 Joy.
Allison’s eyes blinked drowsily open. There was something different about the sound and light; it was quieter, brighter. From the warmth of her bed, she heard a car move slowly passed the house, the tires made that unmistakable, muffled, squeaky crunch that could mean only one thing. A smile blossomed across her face while her feet did a giddy little dance beneath the covers before she slid from the cozy comfort of her berth and, using a bit of hot breath and her small hand, cleared a porthole in the frost that had gathered on her window overnight. She let loose a squeal of joy over the discovery of a snowfall that had crept in unannounced overnight, blanketing the landscape with a glittering and pure beauty, despite the pain her 92-year-old joints would have to endure.
