A 55 er. Thanks for the inspiration, Solilo 🙂
Come, his eyes begged.
Stay, her pliant soul searchingly reached out.
Fingers entwined, feet shuffling, slowly, heart thudding; slowly their fingers moved, apart, fingertips lingering, the invisible strings of love straining between…
The bus arrived. She stood, watching, a hollow curved within, in gut wrenching pain.
He left. She stayed.
And, impossibly, their love grew.

This is what a 55 er is; information from Solilo’s post 🙂
A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
- Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
- A setting,
- One or more characters,
- Some conflict, and
- A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
Do try your own. I found it like a haiku in prose. Darned difficult, I tell you 🙂 So I shall excuse you if you deem this to be as silly as I think it is 🙂 🙂 With a cliche of a heading to boot. Lol!
But… and this is the most important thing… read closely…:)
I had FUN!
