The waiting is over…

Five Sentence Fiction prompt this week is:


Today, the waiting is over and I will leave this place where I have lived all my life. This has been a good place of quiet solitude; wrapped in love and warmth, with  a steady rhythm like that of a gentle drum.  While here I have learned a couple of things about myself:  I love warm baths and a good stretch but I do not like spicy foods or sudden loud noises.  I am ready to move from here, as nice as it is, for it has become crowded and I want to grow and experience all of life.  The waiting to move from here is over for today is my birth day.

  1. This was a wonderfully creative and imaginative response to the prompt! It is so well written and the narrative voice is just excellent. 🙂

    1. I count those sentences over and over. When I am ready to click publish and I give it one more look sometimes there will be an extra sentence in there. Usually an easy fix but still…

  2. This story ended up in such a wonderful twist, at first I didn’t see it coming, as I was looking at the suitcase and thinking someone was going somewhere. Somewhere indeed… into the big world outside! So beautifully told! This would also work perfectly for today’s Two Shoes Tuesday prompt “leave”, and you are welcome to link it up there too, if you like!
