Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week, Lillie McFerrin posts a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. This week’s prompt is DARKNESS.

I haven’t done this for a very long time, and I love the photo… so here goes:
I cower under a rock, sheltering from the dark, swirling storm that threatens to lift me up and shatter me into tiny pieces.
The clouds bloom like poison gases, and I wrap my arms around myself, trying to keep in the warmth; to stop myself from shaking.
I know now what a terrible mistake I’ve made, opening that box.
The shadowy figure of Pandora appears before me – beautiful, yet murderous… and she’s angry.
So very angry.
