Five Sentence Fiction – Prompt: Edge – 4/11/2013

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie 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 weekEdge

Don’t confuse this with Friday Fictioneers!  That is 100 words from a photo prompt.  Go here for that.  For FSF click on the above pic (after you read my story!).

Edge

By Scott L Vannatter 4/11/2013

He held the razor blade in his right hand with the edge toward his throat’s carotids.

It had been a horrible year, beginning with his parent’s divorce and the subsequent out-of-state move all the way to his original girlfriend calling him to break up over the phone due to the distance between them, both from the move and his sad attitude over the entire separation mess.

He thought how easy it would be to take the thin stainless steel blade and slice his throat while no one was home and he would be gone before anyone even suspected he was serious about the entire business.

He pictured his parent’s faces when the coroner told them or when his mom walked in to find him dead; he pictured his girlfriend and the pain she would go through; he pictured his sister as she realized she would no longer have him as her supporter and confidante; he pictured her with the blade in her hand.

He took the blade and cut the wire in half to finish his electronics project for science.
