Well, this is short! When I saw the prompt, all I could think about was my Highway Man which fits perfectly. But been there, done that so had to rethink and took a different angle of ‘foggy’ altogether . . . Must be the time of year! xxxx
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
