Five Sentence Fiction


I’ve decided to try my hand at Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction. Below is a description from her blog.

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. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction. This week’s inspiration word is : SACRIFICE


She eyed the last piece of apple pie that she’d been dreaming about all day. She scooped it up with her hands and slipped in onto her plate, licking her sticky fingers. He strolled in just as she was sinking her fork into the flaky pastry, poised for that memorable first bite. His bottom lip jetted out and her heart melted into a mushy goo not unlike the apple filing. She handed him the fork and watched as a smile spread across his face.
