Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Lucky

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

Lucky. I sure didn't feel lucky. Not now, not looking at that disgusting plate of bright green vegetables, steam rising from them in clouds that smelled like dirt and something worse, something weird. 
Anxious to avoid another lecture on starving children in Africa, I picked up my fork, speared one of the unsettling sprouts and brought it, trembling to my lips. I took a tiny, almost imperceptible bite. 
Oh dear God... it was ... delicious!

Voila! I hope you enjoyed this weird little tale. If you did, then I hope you will honour me by following this blog, as well as come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. If you're still in the mood for more Five Sentence Fiction, just follow the links below and read past editions. Happy weekend!

  1. I had to laugh at this. My husband always makes me try new things; he loves to cook when he is home. I am always hesitant, a creature of habit. Inevitably, I love what he has cooked. Good story here!
