Fantastic Friday Fiction – I
Tada! Introducing a new category in my blog: Fantastic Friday Fictions…
After all, a week began with a mind blowing Monday deserves to be ended with a fantastic Friday 🙂
Its been a long while since I attempted fiction; even though I have come out of my writer’s block quite some time back. Just to motivate myself enough to create fictions once more, I decided to introduce this category. And before you label me as a narcissist, let me clarify that “Fantastic” qualifies only “Friday” 🙂 Whether it qualifies the fictions or not, it depends totally on my readers.

55 Fiction is a micro-fiction within a word limit of 55 words, containing the following four elements: a setting; one or more character(s); conflict; and a resolution. Fiction 55s are usually dramatized so as to get the maximum effect within the restricted word limit.

A MATTER OF HONOUR
“I want both my son and the girl from the low caste hacked to death”.
“It shall be done”, I replied.
I could see the two lovers in the dark, lonely park. I approached stealthily with my knife. First the son, I thought. The moment I struck him, the girl looked behind and screamed “Baba”!
