What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
This week’s word: ENVY
BEHIND THE MASK

Our friends the next door neighbours are always in the red, heavily in debt, but always so very happy.
We have always worked very hard for every penny we have, and we save our money for a rainy day.
They are lucky, going off on a cruise around the world, how do they manage that with all their bills?
We are off to a guest house in Southend-on-sea, all we can afford, unlike some careless people.
We thought they were crooks until we found out the truth, they won a lot of money on the lottery.
