Five Sentence Fiction – What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
This week’s word:
She clutched the gift tighter than she meant to, took a deep breath and entered the room.
“Sarah I’m so glad you are here; come meet your God-daughter, Elizabeth.”
She swallowed the lump in her throat, leaned over hugged her best friend and grasp the tiny hand, the words from her doctor drowning out her friends proud words of motherhood.
“I’m sorry Sarah you will never have children,” he’d said. Tears clouded her vision as she lifted the precious bundle, pressing her face into the seductive baby smell.
She glanced at her smiling, proud friend, mother of three, swallowed the rising bile, and choked out the words, “She’s beautiful, thank you for thinking of me.”
