Here's mine from Prompt #3 -- The Keeper

Crop circles, the pyramids, legend and religion have one thing in common—a grain of truth, a scarred piece of the puzzled past. Science would eventually explain what magic and myth kept hidden, kept us in ignorance of.

Ducking low, I stumbled through the underbrush, searching for the entrance, knowing theirs was a secret they’d kill to keep. Relief flooded my shivering, sweat-soaked body as I heaved open the trap door. I had a secret too, and, for today at least, it was safe.

I could completely visualize it and feel her relief. I want to know her secret! And the line about what legend and religion had in common being a grain of truth, intrigued me. Excellent 5, Kary!

Definition House said...

Loved your 5, Kary. So intriguing and I'm also dying to know her secret. Fantastic. Thanks for taking part. :)

Here's mine from Prompt 1:

My toy airplane is here. When that monster rose out the water, I dropped it and ran. No one believed me. Maybe he's hiding inside? If I'm quick, maybe he won't see me.

Definition House said...

Excellent voice, Andrea. I believe him! Definitely want to see that monster. The voice drew me in and the rhyming sealed the deal. Great use of the 5!

Those were awesome 5 sentence stories, Kary and Andrea. My muse is sleepy right now - so I'm not going to join in.

Definition House said...

Definitely awesome stories. :) Thanks for stopping by and tweeting, Daryl!
