FSF : Conquer

I sure do love Lillie McFerrin's Five Sentence Fiction!

Lillie McFerrin

What it’s all about: 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.
This week: CONQUER
---

"I can't do this," Joseph's fist wrapped tightly around the crystal hanging from his neck, "I'm not strong enough."  Steadying himself with his back against the wall, he pleaded with Amara, his weakness sending static electricity to every corner of the room.

"You're wrong, god dammit!" Amara's voice, deep and strong, echoed with each syllable.  "Crush the damn thing!  Crush it!"  she pushed the hammer into his free hand.

Joseph locked in on Amara's glaze and in one swift gesture, ripped the crystal from his neck and threw it on the floor, greedily crushing the crystal with each blow, the Queen's screams ringing in their ears, "Nooooo!"

  4. Yep, a through-the-keyhole glimpse at something much larger.

    I, too, have a screaming queen, though under very different circumstances.

    Cheers!
