#FiveSentenceFiction is a flash-fiction event hosted by Lillie McFerrin. She provides a prompt and participants post five-sentence stories – inspired by the prompt in some way – on their blogs. This week’s prompt is “blush” and here is my story (really more of a brief prose poem):
She taught me how to blush.
One glance from her and my face would turn crimson.
One sly smile and I’d be pouring with sweat.
My world changed for an instant and then forever.
She taught me how to blush, then taught me that I didn’t have to.
