Five Sentence Fiction – Scarlet
Carlo crept into the dark bedroom of his New York apartment, lit only by the glow of the moon coming through the open window.
Someone was there—he could feel their presence, thick and palpable.
He saw her scarlet lips first, then the rest of her silhouette stepped into the moonlight.
“I love you, Carlo,” Jules said, “sleep now…”
Carlo awoke the next morning alone, accompanied solely by his unrelenting question: Was it a dream, or could she really be alive?
Check out the Five Sentence Fiction weekly challenge created by Lillie McFerrin.
This is part of a series, you can read the rest of Carlo’s story here.
Oh, very nice! I’d like to know the rest of this story!!!
Intriguing. Sounds like the beginning a good book.
Definitely needs expansion…inquiring minds and all that…. 😉
I agree with the above. Now I want to know more.
Yep. Intrigued. Lots and lots of room to flesh this out. This is a great little teaser.
I love this. What a fun way to go with the prompt. You can tell how good it is by all the requests for more of the story, and I agree. You’ve got a longer piece here any time you want to revisit it. Good job!
I loved this and totally agree with everyone else because I really want more! Is it a dream? Why wouldn’t she be alive? Brilliant!!
Nicely done. Intriguing.
