Welcome to Friday. That special time each week when we celebrate the quickly approaching weekend and enjoy some Five Sentence Fiction, a story told in just five sentences. If you'd like to learn more about it, or give it a try yourself (which I highly suggest), just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. This week's prompt is abandoned. Let's get started!
She whispered the lullaby under her breath, careful not to walk too fast or swing the basket erratically. It was impossibly dark out and too many times she almost stumbled, making her entire body clench with fear.
Ever so slowly and carefully, she set the basket down on the doorstep, tucking the blankets around the darling little face that slept within. She tiptoed away, waiting until she was down the drive and on the sidewalk before sprinting away as fast as she could.
She didn't look back, didn't think about the family within and what would happen when they discovered that the thing in the basket wasn't a baby; all she could do was save herself.
I hope you enjoyed my twisted little tale. And if you did, I hope you'll share the link with friends and perhaps even follow this blog and come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. Further more, I hope you'll follow the links below and check out previous week's editions and share your comments and insights. There's one more thing I hope for, and that's for you to have a great weekend! Thanks for reading!
