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: IRRITATION.

She looked through the clothes inside her wardrobe, chose a few, but flung them all away from her in irritation.
She wanted something that no one had seen her wear before, something spanking new and different too that made her stand out at the party the next day.
Suddenly she hit upon the perfect idea, after all she had the skill, although acquired reluctantly at the insistence of her mother.
That evening when her mother got home, the daughter was busy putting the final touches to the newly stitched dress.
The mother’s proud smile of approval faltered and almost disappeared when she saw bits and pieces of her much loved sari littering the floor.
