Lillie McFerrin posts a “Five Sentence Fiction” prompt.
This week it is: Secure
My hero is “Leo the Lion” March, the most famous of all cats, and there he is in that mirror.
When Mr. March enters a room he is so self-confident, handsome, and interesting.
While I’m so self-conscious, fearful, and tongue-tied .
All my cat friends, knowing how I worship Leo, tease me calling me “Little Leo the Lamb”, but one day, like my hero, I’ll walk into a room like Mr. March, coming in like a lion.
But I still worry that I’ll just go out like a lamb.
