Catch Up with a Mate joins Five Sentence Fiction

Joining the blog hop, writing about Forbidden Love was fun….Lillie McFerrin, one of the hosts of the hop has a blog called ‘ Five Sentence Fiction’.  I had been told of her blog back in 2011 , a blog were each week, you could submit a short piece of writing, five sentences of fiction’ to a word prompt.

Well, its 2012, and I am on board….

This weeks word ( 14th -20th June) is MEDICINE…Here goes nothing!!

She looked at the pill bottles neatly lined up in the vanity cabinet.

They contained pills to make her feel happy, one to stop the anxiety, another to quell the tremor that had developed in her right hand.

The blue pill…for the dull headache that was ever present….the yellow pill to combat the side effects of the blue.

Filling a cup with water she swallowed the medicine, one pill at a time….

And then she waited…she was forever waiting…. to feel better.
