Five Sentence Fiction - Engulf

I wanted to capture this one in time, as the imagine and prompt word of this weeks Five Sentence Fiction could be missed. It spoke the second I saw it. It engulfed me! (chortle)


When Andrea looked at the letter she felt like she had just been slapped in the face - hard. She just stood there stunned. She had no words as her mind reeled at the implication for her future here and what this meant; no words to make it feel better, or go away, it was done, it was already past and she was powerless to change it.

Then it started in her toes, and rushed up her legs filling her belly with heat and quickening her heartbeat, making her catch her breath, as her mind filled with enraged thoughts. They would pay for this in more ways they could imagine! 


  1. Well, I'm hooked. This reads like an amazingly gripping start to a wild ride of a story! Love!!

    p.s In the third sentence, I read 'there' as 'she?'

    1. Thanks Joy - I have edited it. Funny how the brain puts in what you think should be there when you read it.

  2. Well done, in intensity and delivery. Now, finish it...please.
