Five Sentence Fiction – Medicine

June 14, 2012 15 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: MEDICINE

I have been dying to use this word just to share this song. One of my favorites by Grace Potter!

Don’t forget the blog hop for more flash fiction!!! Prizes too 🙂

I look forward to reading everyone’s five sentences. Post your sentences on your blog, and link up your post below.

Forbidden Love Blog Hop!!

Here’s my take on the theme:

Each echoing footfall of his unwavering departure hammered the rusty nail of despair deeper into her heart. She knew it was over, that was the way it had to be, but her soul still wept for the love she’d lost. A real, aching, shattering, beautiful, perfect love.

The day they had met, the sun glimmered bright and fierce overhead as she crouched down, fingers splayed in the sand, sifting for seashells. When a shadow fell over her searching hands, she squinted up at the source.

“Find something?” the sun blocker had asked.

Intrigued by his husky voice she stood, dusting sand from her hands. Their eyes met and her heart clenched at the silent promise in his liquid amber eyes.

“No, searching for something.”

He nodded. “I was too, but I think I’ve found it.”

A conspiratorial grin lifted the corner of her mouth. “You know, I think perhaps I have, too.”

It had been an otherworldly experience she would’ve once scoffed at, never having been a romantic. He’d taken her hand and led her down the beach while they talked about everything and nothing at all.

It wasn’t until this morning, four months later, that she found out it was all a lie. No fairytale endings. No happily ever after. His single omission ripped the earth from below her feet.

He was married. His wife was in a coma…had been for the past three years. He’d thought he could start a new life with Emma when the doctor said his wife would forever be in a vegetative state and the plug would soon be pulled. But, this morning his wife opened her eyes.

With a single flutter of lashes, a woman Emma had never met got her life back the same moment Emma’s was lost.

I am so excited to team up with lovely Lady Bullish and fantastic Janelleto host a blog hop of forbidden love. Think Romeo and Juliet, but with your own twist and ending. End the story however you like! If happily ever after is where your heart takes you, go for it!!

Lost – FSF

June 8, 2012 44 comments

When the realization hit that it was gone his heart began a rapid, terrified thrumming as if preparing for take-off. It was there just a moment ago, it had been right there in front of him waiting to be picked up and carried to her. Frantically, clutched by a firm claw of fear, he searched the ground nearby, breathing with labored effort as he looked for his lost prize.

“Okay, okay, calm down,” she said in a soothing voice.

His head snapped up to see his furry, yellow, well gnawed tennis ball gripped firmly in her hand and in a blink his tail wagged happy again, all terror forgotten.

 

Remember: We need a FSF badge! Get creative!!! 🙂
