Five Sentence Fiction ~ Jolly

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: Jolly

The patient was an elderly lady who had been in a coma for two weeks in the intensive therapy unit.

No identification had been found on her after the accident had occurred and she was admitted to the hospital.

Knocked down by a hit and run driver on the week before Christmas began she was on her own here, the police were trying to trace her family through missing persons reports.

Then, her eyes opened and alighted on a jolly greetings card, one of the nurses had placed by her bedside.

She looked at the picture of a cheery little dog, chewing a hat and said one word, “Christmas”.
