Fate423 gave readers a challenge: make a five sentence story with the theme of paradise. So I did. Here it goes!
The screen porch clacked as he rushed out, face turned up to catch the swift breeze.
His smile stretched out, and with a whoop he ran past the twiggy gate.
Lengthening his stride, he ran round the corner at the end, ignoring the small dog that complained about his rude awakening from a daily nap.
There it was, the endless flowers and fields and possible adventures and dreams of Guilesberry Falls and Park.
His little slice of paradise.
I`ve never done anything that short, and to find that I fit a whole (albeit abbreviated) story into the proper length? I`m so proud of my constantly expanding writing skills. See? You guys really do inspire me :)
