FSF Challenge - Isolated

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.

This story is more about the prompt word than the picture...

     She peeked out the window from behind the curtain, looking at the busy street below, three floors down. There were so many people, but whom could she trust? As a woman passing by appeared to look up at her, she drew away from the window, steadying the curtain so her presence wouldn't be known. It's best not to take a chance, she thought. Turning her walker around, she inched toward a worn easy chair, lowered herself gently into it, then reached over to the lamp and extinguished the light.

  1. I really like this. You captured the prompt.

    1. Thanks! I really couldn't come up with anything good for the picture, so I just went with the prompt word.

      Sorry it took a while to post and reply to your comment. It's been a busy month.
