Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Desolate

Welcome to Friday and this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction! This week's prompt is desolate. If you'd liked to learn more about Five Sentence Fiction, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!

She released the red button, lifting her shaking hand and opening the door to whatever new universe awaited her. The last one had been a disaster, but it was always a roll of the dice when you went dimension hopping. This one, on the other hand, looked promising. It was still, so quiet it pressed in on her ears, making her cough just so she could check that she wasn't deaf. She looked around - no one in sight - yes, this would do nicely.

I hope you've enjoyed this little tale. If you did, please share it with friends. If you really liked it, I hope you'll follow this blog and/or come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole.
