FSF Challenge - Trust

Five Sentence Fiction badge from Lillie McFerrin Writes

This week's writing challenge
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.

No picture for this one...


    Bernard stormed in the door after work, still fuming from the argument he'd had with his boss. He tried to put out the fire with one beer after another, but they only stoked his rage until the careless swing of a fist sent Isabelle's treasured  porcelain doll crashing to the floor. She picked up the pieces as a tear glistened on her cheek.
    "Don't worry, honey, I can fix it," he said, though the distant look on her face told him more had been broken than the delicate figurine.
    "You said you'd never hit anyone—again."
