Five Sentence Fiction: Companion


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.  PS: I did last week’s prompt but forgot to post it on Lillie’s site. If you want to read my mini story of RUINS click here.

This week: COMPANION

The rain poured down onto the ground, refreshing the light brown-green grass and dry sidewalks, people brought out their umbrellas as to others like me just stayed inside all day long and fell asleep listening to it.

When thunder cracked in the velvet blue sky, Rocco hid underneath the table; he usually likes to travel with me but lately as the different seasons would come, his likeness of spring, summer, and fall have changed.

He cries and whimpers until the storm stops, when the loud noises stop he comes out of his hiding place to look outside the window near the door, he watches the rain drop onto the street and his eyes follow each one.

I was bored throughout the entire time the storm came through, but leave it to a dog to find some adventure in a small window of time, I was almost tempted to go to sleep on the couch like every sob case who’s first day of vacation was ruined.

Rocco’s tail waved back and forth, fast as ever, he started barking to go outside but I didn’t even know if it would thunder again; I sat up from my spot and unlatched the door to open it and he went flying out of the room and stayed on the wet sidewalk chasing after the raindrops up above him, at least he found some paradise in today.

Spring Says Peek-A-Boo!

springYou remember last week I had complained about only getting out of the house on Friday, because of all the snow we kept getting the weeks before? Well, apparently I need to talk with Mother Nature about going from one extreme to the other with allowing me to get out more often. Since we got more snow Friday afternoon, like two to four more inches. Well, we had our first feel of spring today. Usually, it’s the nice weather we feel first, but as the nice weather started to make its entrance it was overshadowed by the thunder, lightning, and rain that decided to make a pit stop before it made it’s welcome back. All of our snow we got at the end of last week is melting and now we have more water, so which means that it could flood in different areas, which isn’t something that is out of the ordinary here. We’ve had a few floods here and here this winter.

It was so weird to be laying on my bed with Wren and all of a sudden I hear thunder crack and within ten minutes of that, I saw lightning from my window blinds. It was so strange after having snowstorm after snowstorm. I think we had our last thunderstorm in November. It seems so long ago for me! That’s one of the things I’m not ready for is all of the rain again. I hate thunderstorms and tornado weather more than this snow. It’s also kind of funny sometimes, because I’ve already seen people get excited about the higher temperatures outside going from 20 degrees to 40-50 degrees. A few of the weathermen have said we could be in the 50’s by the end of the week, but all of this rain and thunder will be staying. My mom told me last night that it was only supposed to rain today and storm on Thursday. So maybe I’ll get lucky and actually get out on Thursday if mother nature lets us at least enjoy one day of this warm weather. I’m predicting by the middle of March though all of the snow that we hate so much will be back again. It has happened before so I don’t see it ending anytime soon. Sorry, but it’s just my opinion and we shouldn’t be so quick to turn off that thought either.

I woke up early today after having a rough night. I had troubles with breathing through my nose again. That’s one thing I’m happy for, when my dad switches to the air conditioner again. I don’t know why but I find the A/C very comforting when it’s time for bed. I wanted to go take a nap earlier but I’ve been doing so good with staying awake that I don’t need one. Even though I’ve got to say, watching Wren get comfortable, drool, and fall asleep on my blankets made me jealous in a way. I’ve been very bored again. I haven’t been doing much sadly. Last night, well actually Saturday night as I was looking for more movies on TV and when I found X2 I kept looking ahead and found Thor and I hadn’t seen of how the movie starts out so I decided to tape the whole thing. I’ve really got to stop taping movies that aren’t on the movie channels because all those commercials are annoying as crap. I think they’re more annoying when I have fast forward them after I’ve recorded them. To think that possibly some of these movies would be like two hours long without all of the commercials cutting in between parts. It just ruins certain sequences of the film and by the end of them there’s no hope in getting back into the movie if you’ve seen that before. I really need to charge my iPod but I don’t even know if I’ll want to use it tonight or not. That’s another thing I’ve been having a problem with today, I’ve been very indecisive with practically everything! I don’t know what’s wrong with me, maybe it’s the weather. Who knows anymore honestly.

Ghost Town

I’ve said this before that I love history. I’m quite frankly addicted to any kind of history, but I’m more into the mystery and well-known history stories. I like to get my mind working. For example, I read this article yesterday about a lake in Texas that has been going through a drought since they haven’t been getting much rain and the lake uncovered some interesting and cool things from the 1800’s. People and historians discovered a ghost town. Artifacts of buildings that were once there and an old cemetary. If you want to read more about the ghost town, go onto my Facebook page and it should be after the 5 posts from yesterday. Definitely something people should read if you love history.

Almost Ended Up Being A Yucky Day

Yesterday wasn’t as bad (weather wise) and I had already explained it last night. Today was okay. I woke up before noon, and after I thought I was going to get up. I wanted to get up at 10am but that didn’t work as I wanted it to be. I was supposed to go watch Emily give her title away at the Gingerbread pageant today, but the weather today kind of killed that plan. It pretty much rained off and on all day long. It sucked actually.

When I first woke up I could feel my whole body just kind of get lazy, and if I wasn’t careful I’d fall back asleep. So I sat myself up and got online as soon as I could get up. That ended up being a challenge all on its own. After I was getting bored on there, I told myself “well why not read?” So I grabbed my Kindle out of its box and started reading it. I’m getting very into it. Then after a little bit of that, between my hips screaming at me for mercy and my light kind of bothering me. I put it away and laid down.

I was slightly depressed and I was watching Our American on OWN and it was making me sad and I literally thought I could fall asleep right there. Dad came in twice, once to get me another drink because my mom was at Emily’s pageant. Then they came back, Emily straightened her hair and mom got me dressed, when I first got up I didn’t think I wasn’t going to go since it was raining anyways, so when mom came in I was shocked a little. Emily had the Football banquet and so we all loaded up in the truck and when we were almost there it started raining. A little rain doesn’t bother me. My wheelchair’s went through worse with me in it. I’ve never been to a banquet before, because I didn’t do any sports. Usually for these I stay at my nana’s but dad had his friends over so we knew he wasn’t going.

I swear when we got up by the gate I saw a part of my town I’ve never seen before. I am 20 years old and realized where all the trains go in my hometown. I’ve never realized it before and seeing these big buildings and pipes going everywhere just amazed me! It doesn’t really take anything to get me amazed, but this was just awesome! I’m sure my sister and mom were laughing on the inside on how I was talking about it all. It’s actually pretty embarrassing to tell you all about, but oh well. We got there and waited a bit for more people to get there. Where my sister sat all the cheerleaders sat at too. They weren’t recognized, but the football players were, but of course it was their banquet. They served up good food, even though I didn’t like the Mac & Cheese as much as I thought I would. I love mac & cheese too, but I wasn’t feeling theirs too much.

Whoever made the deserts though hit money! Oh my god! Cake lollipops are the most amazing things I’ve had in a long time. I though at first they’d be cheesecake instead but nope, one of the football players said they were filled with cake. Even though he didn’t specified what kind of cake it was, I still eat it. They were so good! My mom got me another one and even though it wasn’t like my first one it was still delicious! I think I could have eaten just those and that’s it. I’m still trying to figure out what were the white things on my second one. My mom and I were fighting about them being either white chocolate chips or marshmallows. They didn’t really have a taste, the icing or whatever and cake pretty well took over the flavor. I need to make those soon!

Rain and Blood

It looks like it could rain all day and I just kind of wish it would already. I didn’t want to wake up earlier because I could even tell how it was going to go today, my body could feel it as soon as I started to move around to look at my clock. As soon as I got up I felt crappy and just wanted to escape today. I had to get up though. I have my shows on today. New episode of Dancing With The Stars tonight. Before though I have my favorite episode of Mad About You, it’s part 2. I had to wait all weekend long I’m gonna watch it. I tried to watch some of Fast Five a bit ago and then I got the urge to listen to music so I turned it off.

Between watching Fast Five I started thinking about my finger nails. They’re getting long again. One of things I hate about my surgeries did was make my legs and hands less flexible. I can’t really reach unless I really try to practically toss my arm up close enough to my mouth. It hurts like a bitch because one of my fingers just has to be in the way and make it even harder to reach it. I think I did that too much and wasted energy on that. I went to grab my thumb finally after five tries and I guess I bit too hard on it which is werid, because I’ve done worse to my fingers before. When I was little I would get the nail off and then try and fix the skin underneath which meant biting that off and making it bleed.

Now I have I guess a blood blister underneath the nail. Its small but noticable. I’m a little freaked out because my dad said I wasn’t allowed to pick at my toe nails anymore. Don’t worry I can’t even reach down there either. I just pick off the whole nail. I stopped that, which I’m pretty proud of, but dad knows I can reach my thumb and I’m allowed to get that one myself but he might freak if he sees the blister and I can’t cover it up so he can’t see it. I shouldn’t worry about it since I am 20 years old, but I am worried. Well that’s all I got for the day.
