Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Paradise

It's Friday, and you know what that means! It's time for Five Sentence Fiction, that special time each week when I strive to meet the challenge of telling a story in just five short sentences. This week's prompt is paradise. If you'd like to learn more, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!

Paradise had always seemed to her to be an unattainable thing, like the pretty pictures in the calendar hanging in her cubicle at work, it was beautiful, but far, far away. It wasn't until a drizzly, uneventful Tuesday that she discovered she was wrong.
It was in the coat closet, the same closet where she hung up her jacket every day that she found it, and she wouldn't have, if she hadn't dropped the hanger. But there it was, hidden away in a dark corner of the room, a tiny door, barely the size of a cupboard.
Curiosity compelled her to open it, but pure wonder and joy made her crawl through to the glittering adventure on the other side.

Voila! May this little story be the beginning to your own happy adventure, and a wonderful weekend. If you particularly liked it, I hope you'll share it with friends, as well as check out previous editions by following the links below. Perhaps you'd like to make my day, and follow this blog or come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. In any case, thank you for stopping by!

  1. I love this! I must say she was brave to go for it, though!

  3. I hope it really is paradise and not just a place that gives that appearance! Or it could be a tale like Alice Through the Looking Glass, only without the mirror!

  4. A lovely story, hope she finds her paradise

  5. Love it...and I'd be straight through!
