Five Sentence Fiction – Silver

Lille McFerrin provides a weekly one word prompt and asks us to take five sentences to create a response.  There is no word limit with this particular challenge, just a limit to the number of sentences. Be creative and tell your story. Thanks Lillie for giving us a new word each week.
