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.
This week, Lillie chose the word "Home," a place to which we often wish we could return.
Far away and behind him, home was but a distant memory.
The dark of night had to camouflage him as he escaped.
There was no family to grieve his departure, no relative to see him off, only pain of heartache from within as he packed his meager belongings and fled.
His last glimpse of the fluttering fire as his home burned was all that bade him farewell.
On the run, forever, he could never return--at least, not while the king lived.
