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.

house

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!
