Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Ringing

Welcome one and all to another glorious Friday! And what better way to celebrate than with Five Sentence Fiction? This week's prompt is ringing. If you'd like to learn more, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!

Moira shuddered every time she heard the sound of the bell ringing in the distance. She knew what it meant. They'd taken someone else. She and all the other townspeople would have been furious with Mr. Rivers for what he'd done, probably killed him to be honest, if he hadn't been the first to be taken. Now there was nothing they could do, he'd insulted them somehow and they wouldn't stop until they'd had their revenge.

I hope you enjoyed this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction! If you did, please feel free to check out the links below and read past week's editions. As always, I welcome your comments below in the comments section. Have a great weekend!

  1. You could make an entire novel out of this. I might have used a semi-colon instead of a comma in the last sentence, but it doesn't detract from the story. I like it!

  2. This made me shudder, one could feel the potential for it to become real.

  3. Reminiscent of The Lottery. Very well executed.

  4. This is brilliant. The sinister bell bringing revenge on that poor town. I wonder what he did to them. . . very well written creating atmosphere in very few words. x

  5. One of the better entries this week. I really want to know what happened and how it will play out.
