Five Sentence Fiction – Harvest

By: Jeff Tsuruoka

 

Barren

The bands were no longer playing and the crowd that attended the commemoration ceremony had long since gone home.

Two generals, former adversaries, stood together in the rain.

Each was lost in his own thoughts as they surveyed the field they’d fought over, now covered with row upon row of gleaming white headstones.

“We reap what we sow, General,” said one to the other.

“Then you and I are both damned.”

Five Sentence Fiction – Pirates

July 5, 2012 4 comments

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: PIRATES

I look forward to reading everyone’s five sentences. Post your sentences on your blog, and link up your post below. If you don’t have a blog feel free to email me your sentences and I will post them here!!

Check out past Five Sentence Fiction posts here.

FSF – Harvest

By: Amanda S. Moores

 As she sat in the soft grass staring at the heart-shaped grave stone, she remembered: the sudden realization, her choked scream, the screeching metal, the blood…so much blood, the high-pitched sirens, the frantic doctors. She remembered her tearful, frenzied attempts to reach the small hand hanging over the edge of the stretcher as the nurses pulled her out of the room. She remembered the flat-line…and the slumped, shaking shoulders of doctors fighting back their own tears. She remembered pieces of the conversation that followed: “…so sorry…loss…difficult decision…time…essence…need to harvest…forms…organ donation…” As she sat in the soft grass staring at the heart-shaped grave stone, she remembered: his first steps, his first words, his first tooth, and she desperately hoped that somewhere someone else’s child would survive to experience those same firsts because of him.
