Springtime in Texas

I sat in the bleachers watching him walk from the dugout carrying a red and silver bat almost as long as he was tall.
My breath caught as the ball flew over home plate.
Flinching, I clenched my fist in anger as the deep voice of the umpire’s call echoed through the air.
In the stands I mumured a prayer, bit my lip and watched my small man stood his ground.

The next ball went flying through the air, and my grandson around the bases toward home as I shouted untill my voice became but a whisper.

Five Sentence Fiction – Home

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
This week: HOME
