Five Sentence Fiction: Waves

Well, I lied about the biscuits. Maybe next week. I underestimated the amount of time the Cracked Flash Fiction Competition would take to get all set up yesterday (also I had car troubles for most of the day yesterday, whee). (Also, you should join us on Saturday for the CFF Competition!)

For today, I'm going to write a little flash fiction. Some WordPress blogs require you to write your flash elsewhere, and then link it. It just occurred to me I probably could write five sentences on Twitter and link it, but for now, this blog will work.

Writing from Five Sentence Fiction's prompt (deadline is tonight): waves.


"Wait for me?" Matt asked, brown pack slung over his shoulder and brown eyes imploring as he held her smooth hand in his calloused one. The ship waited patiently across the bay, ready for its passengers.

"Yes," Faye lied sincerely with a sad smile.

He sensed the truth, but he smiled anyways, and gave her a chaste kiss, distance already between them. Then his hand slid away as he turned, waves washing his footsteps away like a forgotten memory.


  1. Such a sad story. I hope Matt come back soon.

  2. I agree it is a sad story. :)

  3. Sad one...but life goes on...

  4. EXCELLENT. Really, this is well done!

  5. I wonder how may times these lies with good intentions have been told?
