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: MOON
The young girl is sick and in her hospital room, she coughs and blows her nose into a tissue, she feels so miserable.
She has no energy whatsoever and wets her bed at night; she feels the weight of the world on her shoulders because she can’t get up and do things that she could do before she got sick.
Her sleep is so messed up, the sun is her enemy and the moon is her best friend; nobody can go on the sun of the fear of burning alive, but since she was already running a high fever she thinks she could survive the heat.
If she went on the moon, she wouldn’t have to worry about energy, there wasn’t gravity there, and it would be cool to the touch; it might cure the sickness inside of her body.
She looked out her window at night and dreamt of stepping on the moon, leaving her footprints and being able to breathe without a mask; she dreamt of heaven.
