Five Sentence Fiction – Waiting

Word Prompt- Waiting

She had known for a while that she had been born in the wrong era.

A true romantic at heart, modern music did nothing for her.

But when she played Roy Orbision, ‘The Big O’….this 15 year old girls heart overflowed with joy, love in its purest form.

She had not yet been in love, she was still waiting…but she knew that day would soon come.

And when it did she hoped her beau would feel as impassioned about love as Mr Orbsion…She would finally be someone’s ‘Pretty Woman’, but above all she favoured being a complete mystery to her true love…

Five Sentence Fiction – MAPS

Word Prompt- MAPS

He had travelled the globe unaided.

No maps, no compass…..armed only with an adventurous spirit, dogged determination and an unwavering belief that he would find the right path.

But he had come undone, completely unraveled, when he had met her.

This Brazilian beauty , stopping him dead in his tracks in her home town of San Paulo.

With no maps, no compass he had arrived at her doorstep…never to leave…he was finally home.

Ms Perry Vs Ms Boyle….the winner is Katy

On the weekend I watched the Katy Perry movie ‘ Part of Me’

And I was sucked in, hook line and sinker…. In an instant I became a  fan of her music, her dress sense, her hair colour, her sense of fun and adventure.

What is WRONG with me?

This movie was a marketers dream…the hard sell of Katy Perry as a little bit different, a girl determined to express her brand of individuality, which has now become as mainstream as an McDonald’s Happy Meal.

 What is WRONG with me?

Sleep deprivation, boredom, over working in my office job of late?

All pretty reasonable explanations as to why I fell hard for Ms Perry.

But truth be told, I don’t really care what the reason is for my tendency to play on high rotation ‘ Roar’ or ‘ Birthday’ or ‘ Firework’ for that matter….

 I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath

Scared to rock the boat and make a mess

So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice

I let you push me past the breaking point

I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

I have been sucked in to the marketing campaign of Ms Perry and I could not be happier.

A night of pure pop fun awaits my sister-in-law and I on the 24th of November when we go along to Katy’s Prismatic World Tour. My brother encouraged his wife to go, I merely stated I would buy the tickets.

And that my friends is the honest truth….



Five Sentence Fiction- Secure

Word Prompt- Secure

She gazed lovingly at her Mother, held her hand and patted her forehead.

‘ I’m here Mum, it’s going to be ok, you rest, you just rest’

She owed it to her Mother, the women responsible for unwavering love and support, to be present as her body succumbed to the final stages of brain cancer.

Holding her Mother’s hand, in an attempt to make her feel secure and supported,  she whispered over and over words of thanks and praise for the women who had made her everything she was today.

And as the morning sun filled the hospital room with a radiant glow, her words paved the way for her Mother to leave this world with a heart over flowing with love.
