Five Sentence Fiction – Part 2: Devotion to Family, Friends and Fidelity

For the world that he wandered due to life’s little currents, he had struck out to seek the truth of what it really wanted beyond the fog of lies and ignorant deceits.

For the people of a small town who had shown him the ups and downs that one life could entertain,  he had taken their burdens on his shoulders and carried them to the core of their beings.

For the family that had taken him in and shown him what a home could feel like, he braved the sickened world created by those parts of the heart people never wanted to see.

For the friends that had shown him the best parts of himself and each other, he would save them from that which they never wanted to show to the world, or even themselves.

But for little Nanako and the future that they had taken back from the ragged clutches of death, he would face down a god and reach out to the truth.


Part 2 of 3 for this week’s Five Sentence Fiction from Lillie McFerrin. This one is purely a guilty pleasure, and the easiest of the 3 to hammer out.

I hope you all enjoy!

    Well written.

    My mind went to the P4 protagonist almost right away with those first lines (well, my first thought was of Frankenstein‘s Adam, actually…but Souji is almost like a construct of others’ hopes and dreams, in some way). 😉

    Good recap of what occurs in the game timeline. In fact, I think it would make a solid retelling of events, if you wanted to do a carry-on story.

    Personally, I always like a hero who’s a good guy, and this protagonist can be one of the shiniest paragons of virtue, especially for little Nanako. 🙂

    • The thought has crossed my mind. I do have at least a framework written for my own P4 sequel story. 1MC! helped me flush of the character’s motivations and deeper thought patterns I would not have thought of.
      Thanks again Mayumi!

  3. I really liked this one! It made me want to know more about Nanako.
