Five Sentence Fiction – Home

15 June, 2013

I haven’t written for Lillie’s 5SF for a while. This week I have given it a go.


We did ask if he could be at his own home, but they said the journey would be too much. So we are here all day every day, and we divide the nights.

This is his home now, this is where he will live. This is where we sit with him. And wait.



  1. I really love this. Well done in its succinct emotion.

  2. It brought to mind my late husband’s family coming when he was admitted to the hospital with terminal cancer. They each stayed as long as they could, slowly they returned back to their lives. But I sat and waited, day and night, till the end.

  3. Felt so sad, those last moments. Well done, RG.

  4. Brings to mind the last months for my Grandfather. Bittersweet. Sad story, as it was supposed to be. Well written.

  5. Beautiful…

  6. This is beautiful, love it.
