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.

FSF – Five Sentence Fiction: Enrapture

Scott L Vannatter

10/10/2013

Gerard kicked a rock down the empty street whereupon it deflected into the air striking a building window and shattering the crystal silicon pane.

The noise echoed down the street, hollow in its ringing reverberations.

He looked around and, though he did believe in God, he knew this wasn’t the rapture because he wouldn’t be the only one left; he would have been taken, too.

He spun around at the sound of a footstep and, hearing his name spoken; tears stung his eyes as he realized it was Henry Bowden, his life-long enemy, coming at him with a bat.

The bear hug caught him off-guard as did the tears in Henry’s eyes falling as he yelled “Thank God!” in a loving tone saved for a long-lost friend.
