Five Sentence Fiction: Midnight

Word Prompt : Blue

Blue was her favourite colour….At school in art class, she often painted entire landscapes, the sky, the trees, even the sun in varying shades of the colour.

Her favourite song, she had stumbled across by accident, when rummaging through her Mother’s record collection…’ Midnight Blue’ by Lou Gramm .

Though she did not understand the meaning of the lyrics, she loved the idea that the midnight sky , the time of night she found scariest, could be likened to the colour most perfect.

For months on end, years even, she had suffered nightmares, dark, violent images, in black, reds and greys.

Since playing Mr Gramm’s song before bed, her dreams had begun to take on a soft blue hue, peace had been restored, testament that blue was indeed the greatest colour in the WORLD!!

    Lovely little story and clever to manage it in only 5 sentences. I’ll have to have a go. You may remember me from Blogopolis, I hear you’ll be at the Twinnings Picnic next week so just thought I’d pop by and say hello here.
