Five Sentence Fiction — Whisper

Monday 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 Whisper.

Writer's block
Here is my offering:

She was beautiful beyond description in a gauzy white floor-length tunic that was shear enough to hint at the perfectly proportioned enticements underneath; the full swell of a breast, the poke of a firm nipple, the refined curve of a hip. Her stride was smooth and even—gliding—and she approached him with a smile that glowed Fourth-of-July-sparkler white. Jason looked up from the blank page and mocking cursor (aptly named he thought) displayed on his laptop to be greeted by this vision and immediately wished he had at least shaved at some point in the past three days, not to mention bathe. Tears sprang to his eyes and he was flooded with relief as he blurted through sobs, “Oh, my lovely Muse how I have ached for you; for God’s sake vanquish this endless and forsaken drought of ideas.” 

She floated wordlessly closing the rest of the gap between them and lightly caressed his stubble-shot cheek, moved the near-empty whisky bottle aside  so she could perch on the corner of his desk and leaned in to whisper, “Not tonight, I have a headache.”

Got five sentences? Share them!

  1. I knew it! She cannot be named, nor relied on… Erratic those muses! Lovely take and such a nice pic! 🙂

  2. Fickle creatures those muses, eh? As always, thanks tor stopping by!

  3. Those stubborn muses… Even when they vist, they aren’t always willing… Thanks for stopping by!

  4. What a wonderful and very visual depiction of how illusive a muse can be! I really enjoyed this, and did not anticipate the ending.

  5. Liked it, loved it, laughed my arse off at the end of it! 😀
    Great work, truly clever and hilarious and what I liked was that the entire thing led you one way and so wonderfully just smacked you upside the head/pointed to a shirt stain and boinked your nose… really nicely done.

    • Spider– what a perfect analogy: “pointed to a shirt stain and boinked your nose.” That’s exactly the idea: a lovely bit of misdirection in order to get a laugh. Thank you for that bit of wisdom and I am glad it raised a chuckle…

  6. Lol. What a tease! Loved this.

  7. BAHAHAHA!!! Genius! Loved it. My favorite of the week.

  8. Ha ha ha, loved it…and so true!
