Five Sentence Fiction Friday!

What better day for story telling than a grey and drizzly Friday the 13th? Can you feel it? The air is full of suspense, magic and mischief. Not to mention it's Friday, and I feel like doing something fun. This week's Five Sentence Fiction prompt is Armor. Please enjoy my take below!

Beckoning and shining, it waited. The girl let her fingers play over the surface, felt the flutter of excitement in her heart. No one would be able to tell, no one would ever need to know it was her. She lifted the helmet and placed it over her head. Who would ever believe that the triumphant knight and the damsel in distress were one and the same?

There you have it! Short and sweet and oh so fun! If you'd like to read last week's attempt at Five Sentence Fiction, just click the link below. As always, if you've enjoyed this post, please feel free to share it with others. Don't forget to follow me on twitter @MelanieKCole. You can also follow this blog by email to get the latest updates. Have a great weekend everyone!
