Five Sentence Fiction – Abandoned

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I 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: ABANDONED

Don’t leave me, don’t go, my nose began to run, this isn’t hard to do.
I’m three, mummy don’t abandon me… all I want and need is you.

    • Hello Lisa – thank you for the visit. Yes unfortunately the child is often thought as being just that…when inner feelings or words cannot be expressed only by tears and inner thoughts.. Appreciated your comment.
