Three 55ers, A tag

Editor’s note: this tag is doing the rounds on Facebook.  I prefer to respond on my blog.  People, feel free to take up the tag

THE ESCAPE

He loved her madly, she reminded him of a hummingbird, small, full of life. He was scared she would fly away. He tried to clip her wings, with frowns, by imposing boundaries. Every unkind word, every restraint cut into her soul. One day she broke free, they called it suicide, but he knew the truth.

MOM’S GIFT

He unpacked the parcel.

“What did your mother send you?” she asked

“A pullover” he said, unfolding it and shaking out the tissue

“It’s so huge” she laughed

He just smiled quietly.  After she left he wore it and snuggled by the heater blissfully, reliving the childhood feeling of being cuddled in his mother’s lap.

A VAMPIRIC LOVE AFFAIR

“I wish we’d met earlier, I was gorgeous then” she complained, her soft lips pouting

“I’m glad we did not, your beauty could kill me” he said, drawing her into his arms.

“How much do you love me?”

“I’d die for you” he said smitten.

Her fangs dug into his throat … and he did.

    • Yeah, got tagged on Facebook … you have to put up 3 55ers on your blog, that is all. Try it, makes you realize the power of words. You learn to economize with them and tell a story in just 55 words

  3. Loved the second one, Ritu. Very touching. My kinda post 😉
    The first reminded me of 3 Idiots, where Aamir tells Virus, that others ‘think’ that the guy who died had committed suicide, and did not know the truth!!

  4. plus I am feeling bad for the boys on the plane on D’s blog.
    they were right. they shouldn’t be laughed at. 😦
