FSF-Five Sentence Fiction

A Moment to Share

By Scott L Vannatter

Carolyn sat outside the cabin, the young boy asleep inside, a fire crackling outside, and the hunk she now knew as Jordan, Billy’s father, sitting next to her under the bright full moon.

She finally had the good feeling down inside her that spoke of a start of a future, a spark of hope, the almost-promise of not having to live alone and in fear for the rest of her life, and she loved that feeling and wanted it to stay around and take up residence in her soul.

Jordan cleared his throat and continued, “Well, Carolyn, we have been lucky that those things, you call them night crawlers, are pretty sparse out here, so we can still have a fire and I can leave Billy alone for a few minutes while I chop wood, but we have tried hard not to get too friendly with people and kept to ourselves until now.”

Carolyn moved to quickly cover the couple of feet between them and kissed Jordan with an abandoned fierceness, unusual for her even under the best of circumstances, not speaking until the lips separated and she spoke softly, “Please don’t keep too much to yourselves.”

She waited for the night crawlers to rush out of the bushes as they always did when she took a moment, but the woods kept mostly silent as Jordan pulled her toward him and into an oblivion that nearly made this madness worth it.
