Five Sentence Fiction - Flight

Flight of Fancy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Like clockwork the annual sweepstakes entry arrived today.

Chock full of hopes and dreams achievable with one lucky draw.

I've seen the commercials.

The prize patrol arrives knocking on your door delivering a rose and balloon bouquet along with your     over-sized check for millions of dollars.


No purchase necessary.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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: FLIGHT

  2. Hello Barbara!

    I am returning your kind visit to my site, and also to thank you for carrying out this unusual idea.

    Now, there are not more excuses about writer's block. One word inspiration makes the trick, from there on, it is the author's responsibility to make the Muses work. :)

    Thank you!

  4. The last sentence is great! BTW - offer void where prohibited.

    That reminds me - I have to stop and get a lottery ticket...
