Five Sentence Fiction – Blush

The Five Sentence Fiction is a simple idea:
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.

The blood raced to her cheeks, and as the warmth flushed over her the palpitations in her chest grew so loud she was convinced the world around could hear it.

He smirked and strode toward her; she swallowed hard, breathing heavily she wondered if he could see what she felt.

  3. Great work. Sums up the prompt perfectly.
