#5SF : Purple

When I asked what her favorite color was, she said, “Purple.” I’d spent all day shopping, and never found anything until, as a last resort, I stopped at Victoria’s Secret. I’d found purple, lacy, almost not there lingerie. As I drove home, I kept hoping she’d try it on for me, and then we’d have fun that night. I also kept hoping she wasn’t going to slap me, and make me sleep on the sofa for a week.


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

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.
