Five Sentence Fiction: Magnetic

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: MAGNETIC 

The lights flickered on and off as she sat on the floor up against the cold mirror.

The glass tickled her back and she wished for an escape. 

 She was chained to the floor, but it was like  she was only allowed to move if somebody moved it for her, like a voodoo doll.

She didn’t know, but there was a man stuck in the same position directly behind the mirror, they stood in separate rooms, not knowing the condition of the other.

They were attached to each other and all they wanted was space between them.

  1. Interesting, though there’s a bit of a contradiction between her sitting & “they stood” even if it’s not the literal meaning.
    I hope you have more in mind for that story, like a real short story
    keep it up


  2. Interesting – this could be the start of a crime story, a fantasy, a science fiction story – maybe others, maybe all three. I really would like to know how they got there and what they’re going to do about it.
