Five Sentence Fiction – Lucky

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: LUCKY

accidentHe stood there looking at her, incredulously shaking his head as he said, “I swear, you are the luckiest person I’ve ever met!” The officer walked around the remains of her car that had been demolished when she was sideswiped by a drunk driver, asking in utter amazement, “How does anyone even survive such a devastating accident, let alone walk away unscathed? Do you realize how lucky you are?”

Still quaking in shock from her close brush with death, Olivia looked the officer straight in the eye and replied, “Sir, luck had nothing to do with it. It was a miracle of God, and I’m alive and well because in His great love and mercy, He chose to spare me.”

    • I’m sorry it took me so long to respond to your comment. I’ve been caring for my six grandchildren while their mother has been ill, and I just now got to read your comment and your post, which was very good. How funny that we both chose to write about a car accident. Yours was great. Thanks for reading and commenting on my post.
