Five Sentence Fiction – Spark

Five Sentence Fiction – Spark

********************************

“A spark is a flame that couldn’t make it,” she said to the night, to me, to the fireflies.

The campfire billowed its smoke towards us, away from us in its meandering way. The wood popped and she jumped, startled back from her reverie.

She looked at me and burst into a million sparks. She always has to be dramatic when she leaves.

Author’s Notes

I’m trying to keep these stories a little mysterious, engaging the senses, and without run-on sentences that I see so often from other people doing short fiction challenges. It’s hard to keep it short, but that’s why it’s a challenge. Seriously, it’s not the run-on sentence challenge!
