Five Sentence Fiction — The Last Sunset

In response to Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction.


Lillie McFerrin Writes




It was an easy decision once the doctor’s told her how much pain she would suffer in a few months. The move to the coast of Oregon went smoothly. She found it comforting that she could pick the day that her life would end. From healthy mother and wife to a women with a sickness she could not control. The sun sets over the horizon for the last time for her final sunset.


Five Sentence Fiction — Grief



Lillie McFerrin Writes

Submitted in response to Lillie McFerrin Five Sentence prompt of “Grief”.


No one said this disease would be fair.

And yet no medical evidence had provided a definite answer.

In far too many cases the duration  of suffering had been brief.

And  she alone suffered her terrible grief.

Her husband joining the many who die of their terrible cancer.

Lillie McFerrin Writes

He knew they would be at the same park, on the same bench, and at the same time. The large red animal toy was a gift he had given her the last time the courts  let him see her. He knew then that there would come a time would he would take her back into his life.

Lillie McFerrin Writes


It’s visiting day here at the human ant farm and it’s nice of you to take time out of your busy day and visit us unfortunates  trapped behind this glass shield. The air is getting very thin in here and our population are becoming desperate.  We are desperately contending with the calamity of being suddenly cut off from the outside world by an impassable, invisible barrier; one that literally dropped out of a clear blue sky. To survive we are doing things you can’t believe. I leave my hand prints on this shield to take my dinner or maybe I will be dinner.

The Crystal Queen

Written for Lillie McFerrins’ Five Sentence fiction. This weeks prompt is “Frozen”.

Lillie McFerrin Writes

They call her the Crystal Queen. Many hearty souls have feared treading across this tundra afraid of seeing bulging eyes protruding from her eye sockets. They say her eyes are always on you.  And when you see her, trapped in the jewels of her crown, you are heavy with a hundred questions. They all begin with the word why.

Five Sentence Fiction — Sparks

Lillie McFerrin Writes, the home of Five Sentence Fiction challenges this week with the word “Sparks”.

He is my entry.

They were flying to Florida to sign the final agreements on their ideal retirement home. On their first visit months ago they were ready to sign the purchase agreement when at the last-minute they backed out, planning to look at some more homes. They did and decided their first choice was still the best so now the moving van was packed, they had said farewell to friends and family, and now they were taxing down the runway to their final destination in life, their great home in Florida. He always requested a window seat so he could see what was happening outside their window. This time when he looked out the window of the plane he saw large fiery particles thrown off the engine in a great ball of fire.
