Five Sentence Fiction – Yearning

February 23, 2012 Leave a comment

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: YEARNING

This inspiration word was chosen by the lovely Anna Meade. She just wrapped up a truly inspiring competition; head over and check out all of the talented entries!

Fairy Fiction – Iridescent Love

February 19, 2012 Leave a comment

Here’s my entry for Anna Meade’s awesome blog contest.



Iridescent Love

It’s like gazing directly at the summer sun. After looking away his light leaves a bright haze, setting tiny fireballs dancing across my vision. Iridescent blue-green wings flap frantically as he zips around my bedroom.
A memory from last year tugs at the corners of my mouth.
We had passed each other in the hall at work for a year, smiling and awkwardly locking eyes. Then one day he showed up in my office.
“You’ve never worn that shirt before,” he said, casually leaning against my desk.
“Nope, got it last week.” Yes, I was enamored with him for noticing my new shirt.
 “I like it. Feel like taking a walk with me?”
“Anything,” I said lamely. Wiping the moisture from my palms down my slacks, I dazedly followed him outside.
Once we were away from the office, he grasped my shoulders, suddenly serious. “You feel it too, right? This…thing between us? It’s like electricity or lightening or something. I don’t know. You make me shaky…In a good way…I think. My mind gets scrambled when you look at me.”
I brushed a finger across his lips. “I’ve felt it since the first time our eyes met.
 “There’s something you have to know about me before this goes any farther. I’m a fairy.”
Brows raised, I just stared him.
“Really. Sure, I know most people think it’s only a girl thing, but it’s not.”
I continued to stare in disbelief.
“Okay, wait right here,” he said, before disappearing behind a bush.
Next thing I knew there was a slight pressure on my shoulder. My six foot man had become a six inch fairy.
“Well,” I said. “I think love means taking you as you are.”
He smiled, flapped his shimmering wings and planted the faintest of fairy kisses on my nose.

Shiver

February 8, 2012 Leave a comment

The wave of emotion ripped through me from head to toe, sending shivers down my spine. I narrowed my eyes on him waiting for the laugh that would let me know it was all a big terrible joke.

He stepped closer, taking my hand and said it again!
“But, I’m noisy, messy, unorganized chaos,” I said in exasperation.

“Yes,” he nodded, “and that’s exactly why I love you.”
