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.

"Make it go away, it won't stop following me," Ellie cried!
Giggling and tugging at the ends of Ellie's pig-tails I introduce her to her shadow.
"Ellie, she will walk beside you on every sunny day of your life and you'll miss her companionship when the clouds roll in."
