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 view.
Omar stepped out on to the balcony with the agent yammering on behind him about the various appointments of the apartment; two bedrooms, one and a half baths, common laundry facilities in the basement, a gas stove and so on. It was an alley apartment and a large truck was beeping a warning as it backed down the long narrow lane and amid a clattering cacophony, divested itself of an empty dumpster that would be collected and replaced again in a week’s time. Omar brushed a spider from the mildewed and rusting rail and said without turning around, “I’ll take it.”
“You’ll take it?” asked the incredulous agent, “but you haven’t seen the rest of it yet.”
“I like the view,” replied Omar as he waved at two identical twin lithe beauties directly across the shadowy, dank alley.
