The newscaster ducked, his words lost amid the rocket blasts.
I hit rewind and watched as desert instead of jungles filled the screen.

So much lost, so little gained, all for nothing but heartache and pain. War.

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week she 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’s word: CONFLICT
