The Edge - Five Sentence Fiction

One of the items on my to-do list today was to do something fun with the tarot. So, I decided on some tarot fiction.

Over at Lillie McFerrin Writes, a weekly prompt is provided for some fun fiction creating.

This week's prompt, Angles.

I chose The Psychic Tarot Oracle Deck to assist me in this week's creation. The cards pulled - 11 Balance, 5 Wisdom, and 8 Power. In Tarot Talk, these would be Justice, The Hierophant, and Strength.

Hope you enjoy the Five Sentence 'Tarot' Fiction.

The Edge

Jamie took a deep breath and stepped out the window onto the ledge, holding her arms out to stabilize herself. She heard her old gym teacher’s voice instructing her on posture, but that was long ago. She moved along the edge, one step at a time, moving toward the point of the roof. On the sidewalk below, pedestrians scurried back and forth in hurried movements of life. Shifting her body into a diver’s pose, Jamie dove toward them, releasing her wings at the last possible moment, taking flight and soaring upward.

Jet pack? Turned into a bird? I love what it leaves to the imagination. Quite intriguing and great description of her inching out on the edge!

Based on the images, I'm picturing an angel :) Love it!

Ah, caught me off-guard - I like.

I saw the imagery, but I also felt horrendous sadness. Very well written, Cher. Made me feel a lot of convicting emotions.

Thank you everyone. I appreciate your comments. Glad you all felt the intended emotions and saw different images of the flight. Exactly what I was going for.

So pleased those wings came good; up until that point, I though she was going to join the crowds below. Great story with a heart lifting twist. xx

Barbara, thanks.

Lizzie, so did I actually and then she took flight. :)
