Secrets to Keep – FSF

Secrets to Keep

My mouth tasted like a desert, and I looked like crap.  Another night of tossing and turning, but at least I did get some sleep thanks to an old standby.

Some secrets should remain a secret, and digging out my old fairy night light is one more I’d keep even from my best friends.  I hadn’t used it since grade school but couldn’t stand the thought of one more night lying awake in the dark.

A soft glow from a Tinker-bell lookalike had pushed the shadows to the far corners of my room giving me a false sense of security until I drifted to sleep.

Thanks to Lillie McFerrin for her Five Sentence Fiction Prompt  “Shadows” this week. My entry is an excerpt from a WIP, hope you enjoyed it.
