Five Sentence Fiction


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: EDGE 


As she walks through the rooms, invisible doors swing shut locking in each memory.  Her fingertips lightly brush away the dangling cobwebs while each tendril gently attempts to tug her back.  A kaleidoscope of thoughts and pictures twist and turn beckoning her with their mirrors of color.  She stops,
only for a moment, to savor the smells lingering and tantalizing her to stay.  
Her footprints hurry up to catch her, determined not to be left behind, alone...

  3. Yes her footsteps ran to catch up with her, yet I somewhat sense that the footseps of her heart wanted to stay. It's a terrible conflict she has going on inside her, while her mind knows it's time to move on into the future and into the unknown possible she'll have to face, her heart wants to stay in the safety of the past. It's a terrible conflict each of us has to face everyday.

    VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING !!!
