55 Fiction - #13

Here is my next 55 Fiction.

Those who are new to this concept, understand what is 55Fiction!? 55 Fiction is a form of micro fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.Most 55 Fiction works are dramatized so as to get the effect in limited time.


Everything was set. Darkness facilitated him. The door creaked and he heard her footsteps. He geared up for his mission. He yelled after a cockroach bit him. That moment, the trigger clicked and he detected the trickling of blood from his chest. He muttered, "I shouldn't have planned a surprise party for a cop."

Sorry for giving a tragic end yet again. Next time will write a different genre.

Hope you liked this. Please do comment on this 55 fiction attempt!

With Love,

A bit obscure but I think I got it....
the man had planned a surprise for the woman and she, since was a cop, shot him dead instead, not realising the truth.....
am I correct...

u wrote it well...
its tough to imbibe emotions with so few words but u were somehow successful....

Being Pramoda... said...

Ayyooo...:(..soo sad ..

But very nicely expressed ..Thanks for this shruti ..:)

Shruti said...

you hit the bulls eye!
you decoded it correctly and call it obscure :O

Somehow successful eh?
Thanks re!

Shruti said...

""very nicely expressed""
Thanks a ton :)

Mustaf said...

I thought moral of the story was "Surprise kept for others sometime surprise you only"!! Didn't realize it was "she" who was a cop,until i read the comment. So thanks both to the author and the commentor :)

Shruti said...

I couldn't make myself clear with this 55Fiction!
Am sorry!!

Neha said...

this is the reason I hate surprises...bol do yaar jo bhi plan hai wo...why take a chance?

nice write up, and keep it ths way only...I love tragic climax :D

Vinz said...

Got confused a bit though...
Why did the cop shoot...


waise, therez no questions asked in fiction..i know ..i know..!!

was blog hopping and ended up here..!!


Sourav !!! said...

I like reading comments more thn the post .. so every pun intended to the ONE who didn't understand this, go back to nursery rhymes ! ;) LOL

Attempt, was it ... ? 55 or even less, I know now, you can express your mind in 10 words ! :)

And yeah you gave me a lesson for life .. cockroaches and cops (read:woman) shouldn't be surprised, one bites and the other one kills ! :P

Mustaf said...

You do not need to be sorry, I might be a dumb enough!!:)

Guria said...

I think this is awesome! :D

Where is the tragedy? Think like the bullet nipping his shoulder!

I think it is funny! After all no one actually died! lol...

P.S. you can also call me the maverick girl! lol...

Shruti said...

I wanna write things in a way which everyone can understand!
But it wasn't like what i thought!

Tragedy becomes funny only for a misfit girl and you proved it! ;)

Shruti said...

""i dint understan anythin""
Oh my god!
See the backdrop of this story is, like rahul penned in comments : the man had planned a surprise for the woman and she, since was a cop, shot him dead instead, not realising the truth
