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 Flight.
Here’s my offering:
The flight of stairs stretched up and away from him, the top cloaked in shadow. Not just any kind of shadow but one that practically vibrated with a negative energy and a personality all its own, mocking and baiting him, daring him to advance. He thought about turning and running but he knew it would only delay the inevitable so he put his foot on the bottom step. An icy shiver of fear tickled down the length of his spine as he climbed the stairs and pushed through the door.
“Hey Buddy,” his mother called, “let’s see that report card.”
Got five sentences? Share them!
If you enjoy flash fiction challenges stop by each week to participate in my writing challenge offered every Tuesday. Take your pick from two, yes that’s right, two different prompts that I will be providing right here weekly.
