Five Sentence Fiction – Harvest

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.”
