Welcome to Friday! It's time for a little Five Sentence Fiction, and this week's prompt is inspire. If you'd like to learn more about it, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!
She knew before she entered the room, before she even finished turning the door knob. It didn't stop the searing pain of her heart tearing in two at the sight of the limp form on the floor, nor did it silence the wail of anguish as she threw herself on top of it and sobbed. Her hands were bloody, her face wet with tears, when she heard his voice.
"Tell me," he said, stepping out of the shadows, "have I managed to inspire you?"
With a scream she grabbed the knife, still wet with blood from the floor and lunged at his smiling face.
I hope you enjoyed this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. Usually when I look at the word inspire, I automatically think of cheesy posters and bad quotes, so when I saw this week's prompt I immediately decided to go in the opposite direction.
