Five sentence fiction: Diversions

Lillie McFerrin Writes

After the disappointing run at the Boston marathon, Patricia needed some kind of distraction to get over her failure to complete the marathon run.

She was disheartened by her friend Tracy, whose letter at the last minute destroyed her confidence.

Her mother suggested she could spend some time with her cousin Andrea, Andrea was an accomplished pianist ,  she volunteered to give Pat   piano lessons.

The two liked each others company, Pat was doing well  in the  lessons better  than anyone her cousin had taught, within a year Pat was playing the piano well enough to compete in the yearly music festival.

Pat registered in the competition, her cousin warned her not to expect too much,  “enjoy playing for the audience,” Andrea told her cousin, Pat learned from her earlier failure in the marathon  not to expect too much,  she entered  the competition without any expectation, the audience loved her performance, , the adjudicator was impressed with her showing, he placed her third, everything went well, Patricia  gave up running  and  concentrated on becoming an accomplished pianist  like her cousin!

  1. Every person has their own talent which they discover at their own time. Sometimes we have to try things that don’t work out. But the main thing is not to feel disheartened.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post! It is interesting, isn’t it, how our interests and endeavors can take us one direction on one day and in a completely different direction another day.

    All good wishes,

    robert
