Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Foggy

Welcome one and all to yet another Five Sentence Fiction Friday! Are you excited? Of course you are! It's Friday, and not just any Friday either, it's the Friday before the long weekend. So, to celebrate the coming of the weekend, here is this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. If you'd like to give it a try or find out the details, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. This week's prompt is foggy.

Coming to, I blinked against the bright light being flashed in my eyes.
"Sir, can you tell me your name?"
I looked around as the hospital room slowly came into focus around me; its cheaply upholstered chairs, the small TV in the corner and the stern face of the doctor. This was my only chance. I looked him straight in the eye and lied through my teeth.
"No, I have no idea."

And there you have it! I hope you have a fantastic long weekend, and remember: Be responsible! Do not drink and drive! Do not risk your safety and others by partying a little too hard and getting behind the wheel of a car! And for the love of God, do not leave your discarded beer bottles on my lawn! (Okay, that last one might have been more about me). If you haven't gotten your fill of Five Sentence Fiction,  please feel free to peruse the links below and read my previous attempts at Five Sentence Fiction Friday. Feel free to follow this blog and of course, find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. Have a great weekend!
