Nowhere Fast

The first Five Sentence Fiction challenge I did was so much fun, I decided to try another. This one's theme is Fearless.

"Do you have a bigger ramp?" Reg asked Evan.

Together they dove into the dark recesses of Evan's garage and found, not a bigger ramp, but several paint cans, hula hoops, tarps, bricks, fishing line, lumber and garden tools of assorted sharpness.

They dragged their haul up to Reg's house and went to work piecing together an obstacle course that terminated in a ramp on the edge of the in ground pool.

Reg and Even admired their handiwork, deciding that a flame jump section might be too much for a first run when a scream pierced through their thoughtful discussion.

"Regina Lysette Smith, what are you - no I don't want to know - get your leotard on and get a move on because we're late for ballet class, AGAIN!"

Etiquette for Attending Weddings

This post is for the Five Sentence Fiction blog project. The theme is Rain.

“In my country, when there would be a day like today, where you had sun and rain at the same time, it was said to mark the occasion of a kitsune’s wedding,” Yuuki told Anna.

“It must have been beautiful with all the kitsune dressed in their best robes and the rain sparkling in the sunlight and – oh – there must always have been rainbows at every one!” Anna said.

“Yes it was a grand sight only open to a select few; not that there weren’t those who tried to go where they were not invited.”

“What happened to people who tried to sneak a peek?”

Yuuki pulled out a small, worn pouch of indeterminate color and dubious scent, contemplated it a moment before he tucked it away again and replied, “They learned sneaking into a wedding won't do you any good if you cannot see the bride and groom.”
