Five Sentence Fiction 22nd August 2013

At the sound of Daddy's voice Jessica put on the battered backpack that contained her most prized possessions and picked up Monkey.
He'd told her earlier that she probably wouldn't need her pebble collection or glitter pen where they were going, but Jessica wasn't so sure.
Weaving through the forest of legs, her hand firmly gripped by Daddy they made their way quickly to the front of the queue.
It seemed only a short amount of time before they were strapped safely in, listening to the roar of the engines get louder and louder.
Despite Daddy's reassuring smile, Jessica buried her face into Monkey's comforting soft fur and tearfully decided she didn't much like this holiday-ing business.
I am taking part in Lillie McFerrin's weekly "Five Sentence Fiction" Link up. This week's prompt is "TRAVEL"

Please pop over to her site to read the other great submissions

Lillie McFerrin Writes


  1. Perhaps she will like it more when she lands.

  2. Planes are either great or horrible for children ... hmm, adults too, for that matter.

  3. Wherever they are going I am glad Monkey could go, too.
