Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post 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.At least, that's how she puts it. At any rate, below is my entry, and I hope it stimulates some thoughts on the process of writing of your own. Enjoy!

A firefight would soon ensue, and the only victor would be the vultures that circled--high-riding the thermals blown from the mouth of Hell itself.
