Welcome one and all to another beautiful Friday! I hope everyone has smashing plans for this weekend, and the weather turns out lovely. To start you off on the right foot, here is this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction! If you'd like to learn more about what it's all about and maybe give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. This week's prompt is Medicine. Enjoy!
I held the glass above my head, examining the way the amber liquid glowed in the dim light. I took a deep, steadying breath and threw it down my throat, feeling it burn and sizzle all the way down. The effect was immediate, my bones breaking, my skin tearing, my entire body shifting and changing as I fell back into the dark abyss of my subconscious and disappeared.
Some medicines make you well. Mine releases the monsters.
I hope you enjoyed it, because I had a lot of fun writing this one. As always, I welcome all your thoughts, questions and comments below in the comments section (and greatly appreciate them!).
