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 inspiration word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just take your inspiration from that word.
This week’s inspiration word is: BEWITCHED
- 'Aw, but school fairs are so lame, mum!' Carter's whiney voice betrayed his hint of a fuzzy moustache and long gangly adolescent frame.
- 'Do it for your sister, mate. This gymnastics performance is something she's worked so hard on for months and now she'll have a real audience to watch her perform, so suck it up and come for her sake.'
- Carter rolled his eyes in his head and flounced to his bedroom to play music too loudly in protest.
- The performance went off without a hitch but Carter didn't see it from his vantage point at the back of the gym behind all the adoring parents and the giggly gaggles of little girls all wishing they were his sister.
- Carter couldn't take his eyes of the young woman with the long dark hair standing at the door receiving payment for the 50 cent show; the tall, slender newcomer to town who had taken over Mrs Herch's prep class and was standing there laughing while her perfume wafting on the spring breeze coming through the door - school fairs had their redeeming qualities after all.
