Five Sentence Fiction – Alone

Her world was self created…dark, cold and barren.

She was sick of residing there….but the familiarity of this place had its hold….draped over her like a warm blanket on a cold winters night.

Oh how she wanted to leave, and how others wanted her to follow them, along the well trodden path towards a brighter place.

People she had passed on her journey had offered her a map, a compass, even a free train ride….but she had declined all offers.

She knew she had to be the one to find her own path out of the darkness, no one could do it for her….slowly but surely she would emerge, she had done it before and would do it again.


I did not use the word ALONE, but I hope the message comes across. A quote I heard a friend say in 2013 also rings true…’Actions speak louder than words’…and whilst writing helps, action is required to move forward.
