What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

He gently lifted her chin so their eyes could meet when the ferris wheel stopped briefly with them at the top only to find tears streaming from her face, her lips quivering, and finally the scream that would cause the ride operator to quickly bring them down and release her from that prison.
