Five Sentence Fiction – Lucky

Word prompt- Lucky

‘Put your hand into the box , go on, up on your tip toes, reach inside and see what treasure you can find’

She was’nt interested in this game at all…she didn’t believe in luck, even when it game to picking prizes in a lucky dip.

‘I’m going to get a prize meant for a boy’ she thought over and over as her hand fumbled around inside the box, settling on a round shaped object she assumed was an apple.

It turned out to be a tennis ball…she hated anything to do with sport.

Pin the tail on the donkey hand begun in the room across from the kitchen, but she hadn’t the heart to get involved, what was the point anyway, she was bound to loose, instead she took a plate piled high with party food and sat alone in the backyard…..finally in this moment she began to enjoy her birthday festivities.

    It seems such a shame that her birthday party didn’t suit her.
