Night after night I have the same dream.

In a vast, derelict and dark house I race from room to room, looking for a way out.

Every door is locked, yet I keep going certain there’s a way out, into the freedom and light beyond these walls. 

Eventually a door opens but as I step into the brightness and the fresh air, I fall into a precipice.

The relief of waking up is soon replaced by the oppressing dark and cold familiarity of my prison cell.


Lillie McFerrin Writes

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie McFerrin will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.

The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: LOCKED

This is my first participation in this challenge.
