Five Sentence Fiction Armor


Five Sentence Fiction Armor


Here is my FSF Flash Fiction-Armor


I take a deep breath, remembering my mother and grandmother before her, both women of strength. Now I must find that inner strength and wrap my soul in an invisible armor of steel to protect me. The hot winds will not shake me nor break me as I stand enfolded in love. The spirits of those who came before me and the one who stands beside me will sustain me. Nothing can break me, not tonight.
