Five Sentence Fiction — Moments   8 comments

In response to Lille McFerrin Five Sentence Fiction Challenge:

Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week she will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. Poem written in the American Sentence style.

Story about someone born with one kidney and after many years of dialysis keeps fighting until the end.

Thanks to Bjorn!

Except for the constant soft beating of the machine, it is quiet.

You lay still, never even a twitch,  with that awful thing in your throat.

Few visitors come to see what remains of the  once beautiful you.

Most people are born with two but someone decided you only get one.

Sleep little sister knowing that everything was done for you this day.

Carpe Diem #364 — Yaroslavsky Terminal Moscow   9 comments

Well … off we go on our first part of our journey straight through the Soviet Union with the TSR up to Vladivostok and finally we will arrive at Shikoku Island.  I combined a Haiku pared with an American Sentence. Special thanks to Bjorn.

Written for Carpe Diem.

Clouds out my window

violin strings are in the air

a leaving behind

Reflecting on the pleasure of the  journey that will be my future.

Table chair bowl of fruit

train whistles mark my journey

a new life begins

Friday Fictioneers: Trouble   26 comments

Once again it’s time for Friday Fictioneers thanks to our good friend Rochelle.

THE CHALLENGE:

Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.)

Tree Climbing Poppy

His name was Trouble and he lived up to his name. My father bought him from a neighbor for $25. Dad said I was 50% owner. I owned the back half. The half you have to clean up after. Trouble liked to run. He would run and then look back to see if you were following. Trouble would get so excited in the house when we played with him he would pee on the floor. Trouble even ran a squirrel up a tree one time. Trouble went blind at age fifteen. My dad took him to the field out back and shot him.

Chain Writing Game: Episode 25   20 comments

This is my final shot. See Kerrie Salsac’s Chain Writing Game.  What ever will happen to poor Cindy. It’s out of my control girl.

Mac, almost unconscious, saw Agent Kent leaving with Cindy when suddenly Kent slammed backward from the force of the bullet that entered his chest. A female figure loomed over him and kicked him in the groin for good measure.

“Aadila,” Mac mouthed!

Aadila whipped out her cell phone and when the call was answered she said, “We have the Princess, what are your orders now, Signor Giuliani?”

“Va bene, Signor,” I will call him now.

Suddenly Mac’s cell phone began to vibrate.
