Five Sentence Fiction- Flawed

Some people looked at her and thought she was imperfect, flawed.  The scar across her face took a long time for Izzy to accept it for what it was- a lucky escape. Not many people knew the truth of that night and judged her to quick.  Yes she was broken at first, the shock and flashbacks took time to be faded in the background like the scar on her skin.

“Let them look- what’s the worst that can happen now” she thought.

    A lot of scars are internal. You did a very good job with this. I wish the people I know with scars could say “what’s the worst that could happen now” and believe it. Only one editing comment. The word “be” should be deleted from “be faded”.

  2. Andrew says:

    Like beauty, perfection is in the eye of the beholder. She is wise to see her scar as a reminder of her success.

  3. Nicely written in such a small perimeter. I really like the way FSF amkes one really pare down the words and get to the meaty stuff.

  4. Great stuff.

    Izzy is strong, and you have to think about this story to see it. There is a terrifying inplied back story here. Very interesting.

  9. Sandra says:

    Feels like a survivor to me. Good one.

    A powerful piece of writing.
    To me the untold back story left the reader to conjure up whatever horrors they had a mind to. This, in a way, was what Izzy had come to terms with….. “Let them look ….”

  11. I like how you describe her scar as a lucky escape, they often are! Well done.
