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, Lillie chose the word "Character," and I don't know where this came from, it just sort of popped out. It's far more poetic than I had thought, a happy accident. Enjoy.
Character is what a person has when you strip away forced charisma and the bright lights of an audience.
Beneath the skin is where it resides, inside the soul.
It is an innate thing that one either possesses or does not--it cannot be taught, bought, or stolen.
The measure of a man is more than his span.
Character is what a man displays when nobody is watching.
