Five Sentence Fiction – Travel

“I want to travel the world,” she said as she stared out the window, seeing the same boring image that was there every day.

Frustration washed over her; she ached for something new and exciting, her eyes hungry to see different places.

    It read very well, your readers should be waiting in
    anticipation over what “She” would do.

  5. Wonderful! I felt the sadness of desiring things that just never happened.

    In many ways I can relate to this…always the daydreamer.

      I can relate, too. I’d rather see those daydreams come true, though. Thanks for stopping by!
