“Alone Again, Naturally”

Scott L Vannatter – January 25, 2015

The old, dilapidated mansion groaned quietly in the silence of the centuries.

Francesca sat on the empty floor of what used to be the main ballroom and sobbed wailing tears of abandon.

She screamed and no one came; yelled and no one answered; shrieked and listened only to silence return.

“Mama, what’s that horrible screeching sound coming from the old Banston house?” said Billae Joe, her dress dragging on the dusty road and causing a small whirlwind behind her.

“Dearest, that’s the ghost of Francesca Banston, who killed her lover in a fit of rage and jealousy and was cursed by his mother to reside forever alone in that house over one hundred and fifty years ago.”

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


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.

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
