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:  Home

FSF-Five Sentence Fiction

By Scott L Vannatter

6/12/13

Jacob had settled on the bus, refusing anything else, using the hours to prepare himself for whatever might come along.

Alicia had never approved of his “service”; she felt he could have served his country at a desk without having to take the life of anyone else; he knew he needed more; they had fought the night he had left and had not spoken much since.

Almost four years was a long time; he missed her but had sent a message last week saying he would be there tonight and would leave if that’s what she wanted; his heart was heavy, but he still believed in what he had done, why he had been there.

The bus stopped in his small town’s station and he stepped down, looking for her, but trying not to; she was there, all three children in tow, tears streaming down her face.

She ran to him, taking him by the only arm he had left and hugged him tightly, her words slowly sinking in as she said, “That little girl you saved from the bomb got to go home, and I am so glad you did, too.”

Love it Now

Love is ever-present within our own Being but we might not feel it until we live in the Now. "Love it Now" was created to share ideas about loving and being present in the here and now. Enjoy!
