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.
