Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Malice

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

She didn't have the heart to tell her mother she didn't like the doll, not when she looked so excited and hopeful. But really, didn't her mother realize she was way too old for dolls? And besides, it was creepy, with its wide unblinking eyes and cruel little painted on smile. 
She carried the hideous porcelain creature upstairs, feigning excitement, and stashed it in the closet. She didn't like the way it stared at her, the way it almost seemed to move just as she was turning away...

I hope you enjoyed this week's slightly spooky tale. If you did, then please share it with friends. If you really liked it, then I hope you'll follow this blog and come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. Still in the mood for more Five Sentence Fiction?

  1. Good start, but makes me want to know more about the relationship between the girl and the doll...the perceived feeling of malice.

  4. Oh man, I had one of those dolls and it still creeps me out when I think about her. She had a houndstooth jumpsuit on and blonde hair and those eyes always haunted me!! Now I'll have nightmares ;)
