Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Celebration

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

Artie lit the candles one by one. He set the places, placed a hat on each of his guests and sat down at the head of the table. He raised his glass and made a toast. He was having a lovely time, although the same could not have been said for his guests.
Of course, most people enjoy a party a lot more when they're given the option of attending, instead of forced there against their will. 

Voila! I hope you enjoyed this week's little story, and if you did, be sure to share it with friends! If you're still in the mood for more Five Sentence Fiction, just follow the links below.

  1. Artie needs to learn a little about being a host...

    Good story, but I want to know what happens next. I'm not sure what kind of cake he baked, but I'll bet it's Devil's food!

    1. Ha! I always love your comments. You're hilarious!

  2. It is so difficult to find willing friends to celebrate, I can understand Artie predicament!

    It is better reluctant guests, than no guests at all!

  3. I always enjoy how much you pack, so expertly and tightly, into your sentences. There's something excitingly sinister going on here :)

  4. This was a lovely dark dance with the prompt. Nice perspective.
