Welcome to Friday. It's been another slow week for me, so I can't wait to sink into the weekend. My plans? Nothing much, there are a few good books and a soft bed calling my name, maybe I'll throw some ice cream into the mix for good measure.Who knows? But what I do know, is it's time for Five Sentence Fiction. This week's prompt is cherish. If you'd like to learn more about Five Sentence Fiction, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!
Every Wednesday it's my job to polish it. I hate doing it, my hands tremble the whole time and my stomach clenches like a fist. The rest of the week, as I clean, I watch her hold it and stroke it, whispering to it like it's a beloved child. It's not though, it's just a box, a gleaming, little black box the size of her hand. I don't know what's in it, but every once in a while I could swear I hear it whisper back to her.
