Words cannot express my gratitude for Friday. This week my boss took unilateral control of the thermostat, and although I love her dearly we disagree greatly on what is an appropriate temperature. She has the office so cold I'm pretty sure there are ice crystals in my veins. And before any of you cold lovers go lecturing that I "could always put on more layers" I'd like to point out that I'm wearing four and still freezing, so there are limits. But onto more pleasant topics. Not only does today mark my freedom from frigid office temperatures, it's also time for this week's Five Sentence Fiction. If you'd like to learn more about it, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. This week's prompt is angles. Enjoy!
Sometimes the most difficult answers were the easiest to find. Stewart had been staring at the coded message for hours, unable to break it, when a passing student had brushed the thick paper as he squeezed past. The paper had turned, pirouetting on the desk and suddenly the puzzle was solved. The message could only be read when the paper was stood on its corner, when the angles of the letters lined up to reveal its hidden message.
Now, as for the content of the message, and the adventure it took him on, well that's another story entirely.
Voila! I hope you enjoyed this week's little story. If you did, then I hope you'll share it with friends, and perhaps even follow this blog and come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole.
