The Accident #FiveSentenceFiction

She watched as police swarmed the accident scene. She made her way, unseen, towards the mangled car in the middle. Her gaze followed the carnage of broken glass and pools of blood and wandered to the person the paramedics seemed to be desperately trying to revive. It was the face of her husband; the man she’d woken up to every morning for nine years.

She slinked away, surprised that her wish to escape had finally come true.

  1. Great little story, Sanch! I enjoyed it and that last line was a real emotional zinger. Good work!

    You’ve reminded me I should also do a Five Sentence Fiction for Vinitha’s prompt. I’ve gotten so caught up in a photo a day challenge that seems to be all I think about lately.
