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 Wild.
Here’s my offering:
Her hand lightly brushed his craggy face and she said, “There is something wild about you. Not in a bad way, mind you, but there’s a current that runs through you. It pools and collects and then rushes at me like a flood, which is always very thrilling.”
“Well,” he replied from behind a smile, “let’s go somewhere comfortable where I can thrill you without interruption.”
The couple hoisted themselves off the bench and clunked their aluminum walkers in a slow but measured procession back through the lobby towards the elevator.
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.
