Dreams and Dust

Here's my latest contribution to 
 Five Sentence Fiction. 

This week's prompt is          

You'll find other entries at:

The paper was thin, not particularly high quality, and the printing upon it washed out; you’d think it would look more, what?, important?

She held it, heart racing, disbelieving, in her hand : 10 - 40 - 63 – 64 – 69

She looked again at the sparkly blond on television with the basket of numbered balls and the five that had been selected and rowed up.

Yes, there they were:  10 - 40 – 63 - 64 – 60.

Maylene crumpled the paper into the pocket of her ripped jeans and turned back to dusting Mrs. Shepherd’s highboy.


  1. Closer than the top of the highboy.

  2. Poor Maylene. She's learnt the better way I suppose.

  3. Did you watch Lost? I was a total addict.

    1. Yeah, but once I missed a few episodes I found it tricky to get back on track.

  4. Ah the tragedy :( Such a reality for so many though.

    Shailaja/The Moving Quill

  5. Oh, I know how Maylene felt. Maybe next time.


Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think.
