5 Sentence Fiction: The Demon’s Hammer

His hand caressed her newly-polished face, feeling for the imperfections that were no longer there. Her wings gleamed under the hangar lights, begging to kiss the sky again. But it was what hung under her belly that made him pause.
They called it “Kingslayer”, the missile that would fly six times faster than sound for one reason alone.

It would be the hammer that he would take into the evening sky, the fire the Demon Lord would rain down upon anyone before him in retribution of his fallen Vixen.

And entry #2 for this week’s 5 Sentence Fiction. Which also happens to be the opening of something deeper and darker, the natural conclusion of what happens when some poor soul angers the Demon.

I hope you all enjoy.

    I always enjoy your anthropomorphism imagery. 🙂 It’s always fun to see what you do with these restriction challenges (5 sentences, 100 words). They feel part of a greater whole, as well, though in this case we get a full story. We know the ship was damaged in an earlier fight; we sense Cipher’s care for her; we feel the bubble of vengeful feelings. Well done!

    Just a few tiny blips: hangar lights, and “But it was what was under…”

    Glad you are finding the time to write!

  2. Thank you very much!
    It’s definitely a challenge, building a full story one challenge at a time, but on the other hand, it’s also a good balance of what free time I have in a day and what needs to be expanded. Maybe one day, all these little vingettes will find their way into a composed piece.

    Hoo boy, this is what I get for rushing…I’m normally so much better about that anymore! lol Good catches!
