Five Sentence Fiction - Paradise.

Lillie McFerrin's Weekly Flash Fiction Prompt - 'Paradise'
Lillie McFerrin Writes
And this is where it took me:
Adrienne sighed with relief to find herself here again; she hadn’t been sure she would be able to return to the same place – others had talked about a different one each time, so she was pleased to arrive here again.

This time she would enjoy it more; soak up as much as she could before the guilt set in and she had to click the back button. As Adrienne scanned the bookshelves she remembered the librarian’s words: “Don’t be too long, others need the space too, and at the moment, until we get more remotes, you have to be prudent with the amount of time you spend.”

Arh time, that was the very issue, for all of them; never enough in the day. And as she pulled one of her favourites off a shelf she smiled; thank goodness for mad professors and their tinkering, and finding a way to access these chinks in the space/time continuum.


  1. What an interesting twist! Very imaginative story!

  2. An intriguing little tale. Love the idea of being able to escape from reality into a book but you have added a whole other layer - hope she gets to finish her chapter before she had to press the back button ;-)

  3. I love this...great concept...want to go there too!
