Five Sentence Fiction: Horizon


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: HORIZON

From down at the bottom, it’s dark and the air is musky.
Last night’s rain created a small slippery slope on the trip up.
Mud covered our boots with a thick brown stain, the smell was unbearable as we continued to walk through the puddles, some of us mistakenly took mud over poop.
The trail up the mountain was step and since the sun was slowly coming up from the night sky, the temperature was still fairly low.
When we finally got to the top, the mountain was dry, the air was clear and fresh, and seeing the lightly dim stars behind us with the bright sun making its horizon ahead was so beautiful to be able to witness both evolutions at once.
