Five Sentence Fiction: Entrance

The entrance..

The entrance..


As they neared the entrance to the tunnel, a chill ran down her spine.

She could still vividly remember the day Ronnie passed away amidst the fire and mayhem which killed more than 60 other people.

Like today, it had been a cold calm day with the tunnel operating at more than its usual capacity with a lot many people setting out on their holidays.

By the time Ronnie reached the entrance, traffic had already begun piling up and before he knew it, things started to go wrong.

As her car sped through the tunnel, she thanked God for all that he had given her.

    Nice one again…crisp and very smartly written 🙂

  2. You really tied the story to the image very well. Holiday traffic often does lead to many tragic accidents. You drove that point home with this story. Well done.

      Thanks Ann. Yeah in the rush to get home accidents occur. One of my inspirations of this story was the Mont Blanc tragedy in France about 15 years back. That was such a saddening piece of news :(.

  3. Always look for the positives in life and move on. A beautiful short fiction, Aseem.

      Thanks Saru :). Looking at the positives is what keeps us happy all the time. It’s so easy to be sad but so difficult to be happy.
