Fantastic Friday Fiction – III
I am back this Friday with one more Fiction 55.
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.
THE LAST MOMENT
It was pin drop silence everywhere. I looked around and saw their faces, taut with tension. All eyes were fixed on him unblinkingly.
He looked up at the setting sun and started to run.
A shout; the finger went up; the stadium roared together.
India won the Test match at the last moment.

This is to celebrate the stupendous win of India against South Africa at Eden Gardens yesterday. This is not the best fiction 55, but I hope it conveyed the last moment tension of the spectators; and the sense of pride at being able to retain the numero uno position among all the Test-playing nations. This is also a tribute to Bhajji, the awesome but oft-misunderstood player, who always wears his heart on his sleeves 🙂
