Five Sentence Fiction



After a brief - okay...maybe not so brief - hiatus from Five Sentence Fiction, I have once again decided to join in. For those of you new to Five Sentence Fiction, here's the scoop:

Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie McFerrin posts a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week's word is Tattered.

She inhaled the musty pages of her old journal and let her mind take the long walk back to the past. So many years had passed, yet in those brief moments, she was there once more. It amazed her how the scent of dust, mingled with buried secrets could evoke such a visceral response. She was much too logical to believe in nostalgia; much too scared to have blind faith. As his image crept from the tattered pages of a long forgotten journal, she cried out in pain.

It really is amazing how the scent of a book can evoke such overwelming memories. Nicely done.

BTW, fix 'logically' to logical.
