Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Erased

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

"Oh dear God," she looked down at the bright orange stain spreading across her top and shorts and back at the crowded lunch room full of faces already laughing at her. 
The professor had warned her not to abuse the magic eraser, had told her not to take it for granted, but she couldn't help it. Some things she could live with, others she couldn't. She pulled it out of her pocket and erased the stains from her clothes, the laughter from everyone's mouth and the memory of her catastrophic embarrassment from their minds. When she was done, she picked up her lunch tray and sat down at a table, anonymous once again. 

Voila! I hope you enjoyed this little story, and if you did, please feel free to follow this blog and come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. If you're in the mood for more Five Sentence Fiction, just follow the links below to read past editions. Have a great weekend!

  1. OH! That is an eraser I could've put to use many times over in school. I love this :)

  2. How I pine for that kind of eraser...!

    Only it would be a pity to make people forget. :)

    Wonderfully written. Thanks
