Five Sentence Fiction: Ruins


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. I got my inspiration from Thor: The Dark World, when Malekith and his army attacks Asgard, I’m basically giving another perspective to the story and that scene. 

This week: RUINS

The stars of passing souls looked down below at the land that was in ruins, the smiles and cheers turned to tears and screams at their homes destroyed by their long-lost enemies of the past.

The light that kept them from caving inside to their darkest thoughts was shut out by the shield that was broken, they were scared for their lives and were defenseless  from the strange creatures that walked upon their land.

One child clutched his mother, crying out for mercy and help from the warriors who will trying their hardest to defend their people, the mother and son stepped as far back as they could before they felt the heels of the feet reach the end of the ground.

The young boy tried closing his eyes and opening them quickly hoping everything was just a dream and this wasn’t happening to them, but by the fourth time he did it he knew it wasn’t a dream and he lost his balance after misplacing his step and went tumbling over backwards and falling into the ocean, when he landed in the water one of the creatures grabbed ahold of his mother and attempted to straggle her.

He knew he was gifted from a young age, changing the elements and using them to defend himself, but he made sure to never show it off in public but he had a right to protect his mother from these unfamiliar people and he stood in the deep water placing his hands at his side and the ground began to shake and he closed his eyes as the water began to rise his body up and it created the biggest wave anybody has ever seen, and once he was close to his mother, he shifted his arms out to his sides and looked at them as they dropped her to the ground but it was too late as he pulled his hands forward and the ocean washed away the enemies from the other families and dying warriors on the ground.

The Embarrassment Of The Past

It’s a lazy but relaxing Saturday for me. After using the crap out of my legs and toes, they’re not really getting much of a break, considering I’m typing this out right now. Everytime I think as much energy I used up yesterday doing all that work, I might get a full night’s sleep. Nope, if anything it’s rare if I get a full five hours of sleep at night. I got up twice last night and the first round, I somehow went back to sleep, but that second round took me until 10am this morning to go back to sleep. So I’ve been very tired and lazy today, but I’m in good spirits as I have sugar running through my body at the moment. It’s just one of those days where it’s best to watch movies all day long. However, I’m only in the mood for one movie today. Last night, one of my dad’s friend sent over Thor: The Dark World for me to watch as I still hadn’t seen it. I finished it probably an hour ago and it was so nice the first hour I watched it, the look of Asgard and the majestic vibe of it is just amazing. Is it weird that I’m actually listening to the score as we speak? I’ve been trying to “calm down” in a sense so maybe I can get enough material that I can use it for inspiration for this week’s FSF.

Yesterday, I told you about this drawing I did on the computer when I was in middle school, right? Well, my nana was nice enough to take a picture of it and sent it to me on Facebook. Out of the kindness of me and shedding the embarrassment of what it says, now in my defense. Back then, I basically thought I was the shit in school. I can admit now only because everything about my attitude back then is embarrassing and awkward. One of the two papers I didn’t want to share from yesterday is a paragraph of words that make up my little “diva” attitude. It’s so sad honestly! I’m so glad I’ve been getting better with my attitude and I’m not that way anymore, or at least I hope I’m not like that anymore. Anyways, I feel like I’m more aware of the people around me, granted it might be from me being so damn paranoid too! I’ve gotten better about the little things and taking the big things and somehow turning them into small worries instead. So to conclude this post, here is my infamous drawing I did over nine years ago. Something that puzzles me, why in the world am I a blonde? I must’ve liked a hairstyle or different color back then and I just decided to make myself a blonde. I would never do that now though! I did want to become a singer back then, now singing is just a hobby and I haven’t performed in front of anybody since my senior year of high school. I’m a little afraid to do it again. Obviously I had more faith in myself back then, then I do now.
