55-word story…

I had read somewhere about this while blog-hopping. Best way to practice writing – telling more using less words. So here is my first try. Wow, this is already more than half of the 55-words! But intro doesn’t count…

She flashes him. He’s not in mood to see her so doesn’t call back. He knows she’d expect something from him if she came. Of course she’ll give something in return. After a few flashes, she actually calls him. As soon as he picks the phone, she hangs up. Right then there’s a knock at the door. She’s standing outside with her hands joined in Namaskaar! He had taught her how they greeted in his country during their last meeting only three days ago…

Statistics:

Paragraph: 1; Sentences: 9; Characters: 347; Words: 84; I failed 🙁

  1. she flashes but he’s in no mood to see her. she’d expect something from him if she came – with something ready in return.

    a few more flashes and she calls him.

    he takes it, she hangs up.

    knock-knock.

    she’s outside with her hands joined in ‘namaskar’! he taught her that in their last meeting only 3 days ago..
