Welcome to Friday and this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. This week's prompt is letters. If you'd like to learn more about Five Sentence Fiction, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!
The first letter arrived on a rainy Tuesday. Every day another arrived in the mailbox, mixed in with the bills and flyers. She knew that she must have written them, the only person who could have known her thoughts so intimately was herself, but she didn't remember writing them, and she couldn't explain how every letter managed to describe in detail events that hadn't happened yet.
Indeed, every letter that arrived in her mailbox, written in her own handwriting, warned her what would happen that day, told her what would go wrong and what would go right.
The letters were always right, and although at first she was wary, soon she found herself running to the mailbox every morning... that is, until the day she received the letter that told her she was about to die.
Voila! I hope you enjoyed this little piece of fiction. If you did, then please share it with friends. If you'd like to read more Five Sentence Fiction, just follow the links below and of course, don't forget to follow this blog. Have a great weekend everyone!
