This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie posts one word for inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
The first thing Wanda noticed was how much time the males spent preening themselves, then strutting around in front of the females. They also made a lot of noise, but she wasn't sure if it was to communicate with a potential mate or as a threat to other males. The only thing that seemed to interrupt the non-stop courtship ritual was when the males needed to get a drink.
Her cohort, Janice, sat down beside her and asked, "So, what do you make of all this?"
Wanda just shook her head and replied, "I don't think the nightclub scene is for me."
