Five Sentence Fiction is a weekly blog link-up based on a word prompt. The Challenge – write a complete story in five sentences. There is no word count limit, or any restriction on sentence length (proper grammar notwithstanding). This challenge is hosted weekly by Lillie McFerrin. The word for this week is Waiting.
The lingering stench was the worst.

Waiting tables wasn’t exactly the great culmination of dreams come true. But then, neither was the baby sleeping in a bassinet in her bedroom.
Five sentences – can you do it? Why not try! When you’re finished, add your story to the Linky link, and read and enjoy other’s five-sentence stories.
