“I hate you!” Denying her daughter some minor trinket, Diane had already riled the angry beast this morning; waving the red rag at the endlessly enraged stranger who had once suckled at her teat, and now suckled on her bank account, her patience, and her youth. “You spoil everything!”
Diane raised a weary eyebrow, focusing her bloodshot glare at the squalling monster through the piss-yellow filter of a high quality chardonnay. Swirling the wine around her mouth to wash away the minty remnants of toothpaste, Diane had to agree.
Five Sentence Fiction
This depressing story is my entry to the 5SF challenge this week where the prompt word was ‘spoiled‘.
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. – Lillie McFerrin

I’ve had a little time off this last week. My Grandmother hasn’t had the best health news recently, and I’ve not really been in the right mood or frame of mind to be creative. Now I’ve had my down-time, I think that was a mistake – perhaps I should have sat down and kept writing, work out the bad mojo on the page.
Anyway back to it.
Any comments or criticisms appreciated.
