Five Sentence Fiction – Night

If you knew what to look for, pyros left a mark every time they used their powers: glowing micro-embers only visible at night.

Each pyro had a distinct color of flames and embers; in this case, indigo.

Burning indigo flecks were everywhere—on the walls, floor, even the ceiling fan.

Violet had been there, alright, and this hunter was one step closer to finding her.

    An interesting character with fantastic potential for “schock n’ awe” – a psychic pyro hunted by saddistic killers! But I am diverging… A nicely written piece, makes one wish to read more 🙂
