    dear ILites,

    In blogworld, there is tagging by each n every one to write a story using only 55 words . there were many stories written by many bloggers. of that i am posting few for ur eyes..........here goes 55 word stories.....

    My story

    I wondered, why 55? Would 56 make it a little too boring? Maybe 54 would not be good enough to tell you a good story. So I decided I will give it a shot aswell and began writing my own story. And when I reached the end, guess what….my story had exactly 55 words.
    55 words.

    She had to write a story in 55 words. She thought and thought of absurd plots, funny themes, serious issues, dreams and realities. Sometime later she penned this and that down. Time n words both constrained. Scribbling in paper. Typing in Word. Tally of 55. Here it is. Hey! But this too adds to 55.

    A recipe.

    The phone rang. She picked it up and on hearing the request she smiled.

    He was ready and took down everything the voice on the phone said. That evening he served his girl dinner.

    At his home his mother smiled as she remembered how her son had proclaimed he would never enter the kitchen.

    The secret mission

    He looked up tired and beaten. His assistants looked nothing better. They had been working on it the whole night. A secret mission. To be completed before the lady of the house came.

    She came in.” Surprise”, they screamed. In the middle of the mess stood a cake of weird shape n smell. She smiled.

    love

    Hello AArthi
    It is so difficult to write just in 55 words. But you have really done it.
    Recipe and The secret mission which are too short but good.

    "In a few hours the it will start! And I cannot stop it. I am being sent to a place I don't want to go. But do I have a choice? How I would miss seeing you dear?", lamented the rocket seeing the scientist Uma. She did not know that it had an artificial intelligence." - just my take on this Aarthi. Nice concept and your attemps were good. -rgs

    Sorry, posting the corrected one [now only I noticed my mistake].
