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:  Blades


FSF-Five Sentence Fiction – Blades

Genre: Fiction PG13

Scott L Vannatter


Thomas stood in the center of the huge auditorium and stared at the diverse crowd who waited almost with impatience for whatever it was to start.

He slipped the blade from its ornamental scabbard on his back and ran his finger ever so lightly over the edge, drawing blood on his thumb; the katana looked as if it had never been used and, for some reason, that bothered him a lot.

He looked up at the dark-clad figure holding two blades similar to his own; the figure stepped into the dimly-lit center of the auditorium opposite Thomas and almost smirked as he bowed.

Thomas looked at his thumb and upward to his gi, his wrist glinting a bit from the watch he wore, and he smiled knowingly.

The bell sounded and the figure ran toward Thomas’ unmoving figure; one swipe and Thomas felt a bit of pressure and awoke from the dream to a reality that did not have him wearing an outdated timepiece.
