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.This week, the chosen word is "Night." What happens in the night? You'd be more than surprised, I'm sure. Here's the inspirational picture for this week's entry. Enjoy.

Pinky the dragon, the coward he is, would never dare attack in day, comes full force, flapping its venomous green wings, flying in from his corner in a fit of fury.
Landing, he breathes hot air into her ear giving turbulence to her dreams and bringing frightened jolts as her visions turn foul.
But Sir Stuffed-a-Lot, that portly old bear, leaps from his shelf high in the room; and with his sturdy wooden sword in hand, fights off the dragon, tearing a worn mid-belly seam, causing Pinky to retreat back to whence he came as his stuffing fluttered to the floor.
Turning, the bear comforts his maiden, softly caressing her cheek; again, he shall stand guard until sunrise.
