FSF – Five Sentence Fiction – The Last Straw – Pieces 11/22/2013 Rated PG

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie McFerrin 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: PIECES

The Last Straw

By Scott L Vannatter

He picked up the items and tried to manage a smile, but could not.

I mean, really, he wondered if they had been worth the price:  he had actually lost pieces of himself in this mess.

Then, she found him and, with some reluctance, he handed the precious relics to her.

She smiled, holding them at arm’s length to get a good view and so he could see her smile beaming at him.

“Just remember,” he said, brushing the loose straw from his outfit, “you need to click the heels and say ‘there’s no place like home’ three times for them to work.”



Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun!
