Five Sentence Fiction - Angles

 I read the tweet quickly and thought it said this week's word for Lillie's Five Sentence Fiction was Angels. 

When I clicked on the link I was surprised to see a picture of some sharply pointed roof tops.

#BlondeMomentOfTheDay - Angles NOT Angels!

I wondered if just for a bit of fun I could write a story using both ideas and it was Sophie Moss who came up with the idea for this...

The Angel in the Corner
Sapphira sat at her desk and stretched out her wings ever so slightly from boredom. 

As she did so sunlight caught the tips sending rainbow sparkles onto the wall just above the teacher’s head. 

Practicing her new found skill she pondered why angels needed to study geometry anyway?

Perhaps her thoughts were heard because at that exact moment Gabriel turned round to address his dreamy pupil.

“Sapphira we could calculate the angles between the sun, your wings and the wall if you wish, but the maths is a lot harder than the question you should be working on."


  1. This is such a cute story! I love the "rainbow sparkles" and the angel questioning why she has to study geometry anyway... Haha! I always wondered the same thing. :) :)

  2. You know, you could expand this into a short story for children. I think they could relate to this well, especially if it was illustrated.

  3. Ah, Sarah :)) another gem - lovely and lilting.

  4. I love stories about Angels/angles. Sweet thoughts and story.
