My 60-Word Saga


--------------------------
Let It Be

I looked up. The moon glared down. I crumpled beneath.

I felt the night inside me; the cold slowly numbing my pain. Get up.

I looked up. The moon hid; stars shone light. Strength. My jaw firmed. I got up, suitcase in hand. I didn't stumble once as I walked away from her door. Inside, they continued to kiss, unaware.
--------------------------

Sixty word stories aren't easy at all, I realize.

Which is why, I tag Dhruv, Anushka and Anju.

*assumes his awesomely ominous voice* And you, Nims!

Good one. True, the word count makes it difficult to come up with something interesting. Quite a test of one's creativity.

Anushka said...

I dont rite short stories... im not good at it... Im not gona chicken out... 60 word r k... its like sum precis frm high school (if u remember them... so here goes...


Choices are hard. I wish I were still a kid. I don’t deserve all this. Responsibility is a price for freedom. With my backpack, I climbed out the window and broke into a run with the darkness enveloping me in its anonymity. I had always felt that I was living a stranger’s life. It was time to find my life.

okie... im done!!! yipeee..... abt titles... I cant decide... its the readers license... u hav d liberty to call it whatever u want

kyra said...

oh my good god, people!
you are supposed to post your stories on your own blog. Not here.

Dhruv said...

Okay, mine is up on my own blog.
