Special Five Sentence Fiction: Jubilant

Kern stared forward, the disconnected phone shaking in her hand, the caller’s words repeating and repeating in her head. She heard keys fumbling, the front door scraping against the hallway tiles, then hurried footsteps making their way to the living room. “What’s wrong – you look positively stricken”. Kern turned to the people she loved most in the world, meeting their concerned gazes with the beginning of a smile so heartfelt she was quite certain it would never leave her. “The final edits were approved - my novel goes into print tomorrow.”
Christmas present for @oddparticle on the Twitter.


  1. You! My very own story! With me as the star and a happy ending to boot! How happy you have made me, Ms. JT! (So happy I can't stop abusing exclamation marks, apparently.)

    Thank you for the story and for the good wishes behind it. You rock, my dear friend.

  2. This is awesome!!! Ah, how I long to say the last sentence :)

  3. Perfect structure on that one, Jo. Real wham-bang last line that can't help but give the reader a warm glow. Great work.
