Five Sentence Fiction, prose

Who’s That Girl?

She could feel herself changing… Getting eaten by a new persona slowly but surely, definitely.

She feels like she has been catapulted into a place and time wherein she doesn’t belong.

She touches people and things along the way but they don’t do her any good.

Today, she could be that awkward girl sitting alone during lunch hours or she could be you — only you bury that part better than she does.

This is part of this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. I had quite a hard time trying to come up with a decent short, short, short story for the prompt “awkward.” But like most writing process, it was both enjoyable and a relief when the final period in the prose has been placed.
