Five Sentence Fiction - Awkward

Five Sentence Fiction- Awkward

Andy was my closest friend growing up, shy and antisocial; my complete opposite.

He only talked to me, often whispering in my ear when he wanted his opinion known; a rare occasion at best.

When we turned fifteen, Kayley Sparks moved in next door and changed us forever; hormones are hell on friendships.

It was clear Andy had a crush on her, as did I, but Kayley only saw me; these meetings were awkward and the more I spent with her, the less I saw of my friend.

She kissed me for the first time that summer; Andy was there but he didn't take it well, screaming obscenities at me before disappearing.
Five Sentence Fiction"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. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction. " via Lillie McFerrin Writes


  1. Oh, poor Andy. I like the observation, 'hormones are hell on friendships'. Isn't that the truth?

  2. A great use of the prompt.
    Hormones, 15 years old & first love - what a nightmarish combination!

  3. You have to feel for poor Andy. Nice one.

  4. Hard way to lose a friend, but them's the breaks, Andy. Hormones will have their way. Nice job!

  5. 'hormones are hell on friendships' - love that line. It's so true, ha! Nicely done!!

  6. A sharp little tale, the end of a friendship, femme fatale: well written friend :-)

  7. Aint it the truth? "Hormones are hell on friendships". Succinct, and yet speaks volumes of truth.
