60 Word Stories

I've dug up a load of sixty word stories I wrote a while back.  Think I might post one a week, make it another sort of feature thing.  Perhaps on a Thursday.  Today, perhaps.

Maybe now.

Here goes.

Riptide
A swirling in the dark. A maelstrom of memory and fear.

He tells her he loves her, that he's always loved her. There are no tears in her eyes when he say these words, just . . . exasperation.

'Goodbye John,' she says, with the gentleness of a child.  


His fate sealed, all hope extinguished, he succumbs to the riptide.

  1. Nice and dramatic.

    Blink Ink is a good site for 50 word stories though they haven't put anything up for ages.
