5 Sentence Fiction Challenge

It is time for the 5 sentence fiction challenge. This week. Lillie has given the prompt Whisper. Check out the other entries at http://lilliemcferrin.com


 A Lullaby Whisper

She sang a lullaby each night by the cream cradle. Her soft voice soothing the baby’s crying. Staying until her husband would come to check on the child. Then she would whisper goodnight to her sleeping baby. Fading in to the night before returning to the spirit world.
