Safe Surrender

Five Sentence Fiction:  This week’s word: ABANDON

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.      

Barbara stood shivering from the cold night air and stared at the small light glowing in the fire station’s window. She hesitated, what if they didn’t hear her ring?

Tears spilled down her cheeks  as she moved toward the door, hugging the blanket tight against her chest. With trembling hands, she pinned the note to the front of the tiny bundle, snuggled the bag of meager necessities against him, rang the bell, then slipped into the darkness.

“Dear son, I love you and please know, I did not abandon you, but from a place of love chose to give you a better life.”

Forever your mom,
