Forging ahead with fictional endeavours: ~ Write a life on a page and hurry not to its grave; abhor not the coming age, for eternal is the next page. ~ Read what you will, I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do writing.


This time the prompt has been borrowed from Five sentence fiction.

Where there’s smoke there’s fire.

The house stood still, lines still beautiful despite the time it had stood abandoned; uncared for by time or man.

Disrepair was predominate; for the longest time no one dared set foot inside the place where tales of ghouls and ghost abound.

Abandoned and far from a watchful eye, it became a den; littered with scavenged furniture – chairs, rugs and a mattress that was spare.

The site was chaos – cans, wrappers and stains that shouted of the wild abandon that came with youth; complete with sounds that could wake the dead.

The owner stirred from his coffin; it was his turn to engage in unruly abandon now.

  1. I wonder what his version of ‘unruly abandon’ involves! A great five sentences. πŸ™‚

  2. I really like the phrase “scavenged furniture.” Also, I was not expecting that twist at the end! Eek!

    twisted endings are good… πŸ™‚ unexpected but nice!!

  4. A bit of decay is fine but I’d get irked over the cans and wrappers too πŸ˜‰ Nice story, interesting twist!
