#5SF : Cherish

She’d asked me who I cherished, who I loved, who mattered to me. I hadn’t answered her. She’d stared into my eyes for a time, waiting for me to speak; I never did. “Please,” she asked, she begged, she pleaded. Then, she turned, and walked away, drying the tears she had begun to cry. She knew I cared for no one, I cherished no one, for long ago my heart had frozen colder than any ice and harder than any stone.


Here’s my weekly attempt at Lillie McFerrin‘s flash fiction challenge, Five Sentence Fiction. This week, the prompt is Cherish.

Please, go read all the other entries to this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. It’s amazing what creative people can do with just five sentences.
