Freedom – #FiveSentenceFiction 3

She tiptoed across the room. Silence was all she could hear except for his gentle snores.

Quietly, she made it through, out of the door and took a sigh of relief as she finally found her freedom.

But it was short-lived as her baby erupted into wails again that night dragging her back in the room. Rubbing her sleepy eyes, she picked up her baby to repeat the charade all over again.


medievalI am starting off with a weekly series of Five Sentence Fiction every Tuesday here. The above story is written for the prompt FREEDOM. Feel free to join me with your Five Sentence Fiction using Freedom as prompt in the comments. I would love to read yours.

  1. The charade is frustrating, but it can also be rewarding once you see the peaceful, serene state of the baby when he/she sleeps 🙂 I hope you are holding up well, Vinitha 🙂


  2. Such a tinge of sadness and frustration in this little story. Nicely done. I felt how torn she was between wanting to get away but not wanting to abandon her child. The idea of it being a charade really emphasized how she didn’t want to be there but felt obligated.

    Now I want to try another one. I enjoyed writing the 5 sentence story last week. Stay tuned…

    1. Thank you for the detailed input, Cat. Yes, sometimes it is hard to deal but it won’t feel right to stay away. The little one’s cry has such a pull on the strings of our heart.
      Waiting to read your take, Cat. 🙂
