She stood, head thrown back and hair flying away from her face, the sword held aloft, a true picture of fearlessness.

They had her at the edge of the cliff, with only a sheer drop behind into the rocks below, and five of them with swords drawn, fanned out just a few feet away in front.

A slight movement to the left was enough, she moved like whirlwind, her sword just a blur as it struck with precision, five times in all.

It was over in seconds, and the silence of her victory was broken only by the noise of the game console clattering to the floor as she hurriedly clambered on to the chair.

“Mommmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee……” she shrieked, “there is a mouse in my room!”

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie McFerrin posts a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate can write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in the five sentences, and is just for direction. This week: FEARLESS
