Five Sentence Fiction – “Forgotten” – Overlooked – Rated PG13

Lillie brings us this week’s Five Sentence Fiction prompt:  Forgotten.  Mine is below; the rest are >HERE< Enjoy!

Forgotten

“Overlooked”

By Scott L Vannatter – February 26, 2015

She walks slowly and a bit unsteadily down the avenue, carrying all her worldly belongings with her, dropping her umbrella and being way too tired to retrieve it.

Her hopes and dreams have come with her; they are her only currency to make it in this bitter, dirty world.

A man steps from the shadows and approaches her, knowing all too well she is overly-tired and will not run away.

He gives her his oft-made speech about success and money and all she has to do is…

She, like thousands of almost nameless young girls disappear, their hopes and dreams a poor defense against the predators lurking and waiting.

Five Sentence Fiction – Villainous “What Evil Lurks…” Suspense – Rated PG13

Lillie brings us a new Five Sentence Fiction topic again; this week is “Villainous”.  My story is after the picture.  The rest are >HERE<.  Enjoy!!!

Villainous

“What Evil Lurks…”

Scott L Vannatter – February 10, 2015

Gerrard stalked through the forest looking intently for his prey under bush, foot, and rock.

His problem was not his intent, but his vision, as his prey lurked up in a moss-covered tree and that prey jumped him as he passed underneath the green canopy.

Hearing the sudden change in noise, Gerrard managed to turn up and draw his blade as the enemy’s dagger went for his own throat.

The blades sunk in deeply, mortally wounding both Gerrard and the surprised villainous personage.

Gerrard managed to look at the dead murderer as his own life slipped away, and he choked out a satisfied sigh knowing that, at least, he had rid the world of the Ripper though none might ever know.

Trust

“All’s Fair”

By Scott L Vannatter – December 7, 2014

Sandra watched as Joel left Michelle and walked into his apartment; she especially watched how he looked at Michelle as they kissed goodbye.

She wanted that affection so very much and was willing to take…every step necessary.

Sandra opened the canister she had purchased from Gilda and removed a large chunk of the ill-smelling creme so she could mix it with the hairs she had “borrowed” from Sandra’s comb.

Rubbing the awful mix into a lotion-like substance, Sandra rubbed it all over her hands, face, hair, and even under her clothing, feeling a definite tingle throughout the process.

Standing behind the corner of a building, she changed clothing into something she had again “borrowed” at Michelle’s and walked toward the apartment building as a “new” woman.

Five Sentence Fiction – Flight – “Liftoff” PG13 – Sci-fi

Lillie gives us Five Sentence Fiction.   Prompt is “flight.”  My story is below; the rest are > HERE < Enjoy!!!

Flight

“Liftoff”

By Scott L Vannatter

Cameron pulled back on the throttle as he moved several other switches and adjusted a dial or two, and the motor purred, then sputtered, then popped, and stopped completely.

“Dang it!” he yelled as the techie crew surrounded the craft and began twisting, turning, and maneuvering several dozen parts and gadgets on the vehicle.

He went through the same routine as before with the switches, dials, and throttle, smiling as the craft behaved and lurched forward running faster and faster until it achieved flight.

Cameron soared over canyons, twisted through mountain passes, and skimmed over vast plains.

Anywhere else this would not seem quite the task, but here on Mars, the first flight made by man using a craft built on the planet would burst the Internet lines when the transmission reached home.

Marriage

“To Have and to Hold”

By Scott L Vannatter – October 25, 2014

It was an arranged marriage and Chelsey did not like Hubert one bit.

He was going to be her husband only because her family owed him so much money which he promised to forgive after the ceremony.

This did not, of course, happen and her poor father was going to have to work himself to death in the mine just to keep out of legal problems and from losing his house and family; her mother was sickly and Chelsey was an only child.

On their wedding night, Chelsey, with a smile, told him she would give him what he deserved.

How unfortunate she should be a widow after one night because of a loose rug at the top of the stairs?
