She shimmered under the starlight, as if her skin were speckled with the sand of dreams. A light seeped through her pores and a song emerged from her lips. The glamour mesmerized the Fey of the forest. One by one they bled for her, unable to see blackness in her eyes. She smiled, and, belly full, she slipped into the shadows.

This was written for Five Sentence Fiction over at Lillie McFerrin WritesΒ –Β 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.
