FSF Challenge - Family

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 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.

Get FSF updates on twitter by following @5SentenceFic

Another short one this week...

Blind Date

    The routine was always the same when Brad and Cheryl went downtown on a date—he'd stop by the subway station entrance and talk to a homeless man, the discussion always ending with Brad giving him money, sometimes forcibly.
    "Why do you always give that beggar money, especially since he doesn't seem to want it?"
    "He's my brother, isn't he?"
    "Yes, I know we're all supposed to be brothers—"
    Seeing his eyes grow moist, she turned and looked back, only then seeing the resemblance.

  1. This one has a punch to it. An unexpected take on the family prompt.

    1. Thanks! It is similar to one I had written long ago, but enough was different to make it unique.
      I hope the issue with the web site won't dissuade people from writing FSF in the future. I haven't had a chance to read but a few of the other's post before the site went down.

  2. A great story, well done with this one.

    1. Thanks! And good luck with your latest novella!

      ( You can find out more about it here: )

  3. Very good. So much in something so short. I missed this prompt as I was on holiday.

    1. You can't do them all! There never seems to be enough time - which is why I appreciate it so much when people drop by to read and leave a little note!

  4. Love this, you always hit the nail on the head!

    1. I'm not sure I always do, but thanks! And a special thanks for reading and leaving a comment because I know you've been really busy!
