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 Beauty.
Here’s my offering:
She stretched and yawned telegraphing her boredom with the current conversation. Lilly had things to do; she had to get herself ready. And why hadn’t dinner been served yet? My God, she thought, these people are insufferable. She resumed her bath on the couch, straightened her whiskers, and despite deciding that being beautiful was hard work, began to purr.

I did a story about a dog last week so in an effort to remain fair and balanced I thought a cat story was only proper. I hope you enjoyed it.
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.
