Five Sentence Fiction

Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction. This week’s inspiration word is : Hunger*
She came to the library often enough that the librarian knew her by face; her smile was warm and inviting, like the library itself. The countless rows filled with countless books, all keeping their secrets locked tight within their pages. Her stomach growled and her heart ached, both hungry for that which they did not possess. She wondered what it was like to be full of food and words. To visit the library for more than just to escape the weather.
*This was a really difficult word for me. Hope it’s not as crap as I think it is.

  1. It is not anything close to crap!! Seriously, I like this so much. The first two sentences, I was thinking yeah, yep, that's how I feel. And, then stark reality. How easy it is to take those things for granted. Awesome job.

  2. Ooooo I like it! The first sentence in I wasn't sure how you were going to link the library with hunger but you pulled it off! Great writing 🙂
