Five Sentence Fiction: Smile

Hers was a smile he could wrap himself like a blanket, framed in midnight locks surfing down her cheeks and spine. Whenever she wore it, a small slice of sun would shine, even now in the dead of a slumbering night.

Muted breaths tickled his sternum as she stirred around him to snuggle him closer. Carefully, he replied in kind, tugging her hips closer to his.

And even if the alarm clock were an eternity away, he asked it silently for just a moment longer to spend so ensnared.


And entry #2 for this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. The other half of the first thing I thought of/ But this one is much more personal as it is dedicated to someone close.

I hope you all enjoy!

    Very poetic! I always enjoy seeing a love through the eyes of a lover, and you do a fine job, here. I really like that last line about the alarm clock; it’s a good balance between mundane description and the lusher, more emotional impact of his lover’s eye. Nicely done!
