Five Sentence Fiction – Part 1: Flaw by Design

Every step he took radiated purpose, every sentence formed by resolve and resolution, and every action resonated with purpose.  Such was the charge of his name; the ultimate life-form, perfection’s incarnate, friend and protector of a long-lost girl who had shown him the world, the list went on.

I hope you all enjoy!

    I hope you enjoyed Mayumi!
