FSF: Lingering Words

If you're here for my A-Z entry for the letter D, you can find it HERE.

It's time once again for Five Sentence Fiction!  This week's prompt is WORDS. As a writer, I love this prompt!

Chapter 26: Lingering Words

Ylana couldn’t get Myrandia’s words from her mind, even after they finally left her behind two days later.  She couldn’t deny that on some level, even while this woman’s actions repulsed her, she longed for the simplicity of her actions, longed for the ease with which she’d taken control of the world around her.

Nara invited Ylana to once again spend the night in her room, hoping this would help dispel the unease that Myrandia left behind in her wake.  They spent the night sitting on the floor, talking about all the things that had been hanging over their heads, and about other things that might help lighten the mood. 

During a lull in the conversation, when Nara saw the weight of Myrandia’s proclamation settling on her shoulders again, she slid an arm around her and said softly, “Admiring certain aspects of her personality doesn’t make you a monster like her, and if anything, the fact that you worry about being like her proves that you’re not.”

  1. Well done. You don't have to be your own worst enemy.

  2. Late night chats with a confidant can be ever so freeing.
    Nicely done.

  3. That's really powerful even at six sentences L.G.

  4. Wise words and nothing better than some honesty in the middle of the night. x

  5. Love it! You are the first person I though of when I decided on the prompt Words when I knew it would be following up your installment of this story from last week :)
