Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Silver

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

She touched the ornament, looked down at the dusting of glitter sticking to her fingertips. She liked the way it rotated slowly on the branch, catching the light, shimmering just so. 
She was supposed to be finishing her Christmas shopping, not mooning over pretty ornaments, but she couldn't help herself. She plucked it from the store tree and took it to the counter, desperate to race home and hang it on her own tree.
Something wonderful was going to come from this ornament, she just knew it. 

Voila! A little holiday cheer just for you right before the holidays. If you're in the mood for more Five Sentence Fiction, just check out the links below. Don't forget to follow this blog and come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. Have a great weekend!

  1. I wonder if this ornament has something to do with her childhood, it's an ornament which had gone missing over 25 years ago, a missing ornament which had caused a lot of family strife the moment it had disappeared. Could it be she wants to the family whole again at the massive family gathering she's now planning to have in her mind.

    This is the image I got in my mind as I read it a second.

    I'm just curious now.

    Have I gone too far in reading between lines you wrote or have I come up with the same image you had in your mind when you wrote this?

  2. I like this, Melanie. It says so much, yet it is all open to the reader. Love it.

  3. Sometimes you just get a feeling...

    Very nice!
