The shortcut of a long story

I know I'm not at all good at stuff like those listomania tags but this 55 word thingummy got me interested, I mean this might be the beginning of my venture into fiction, albeit a forceful one. Much thanks to Sagnik for honoring (read tagging) me n so I proceed (trumpets blowing in the background)

The Return of the Count
She was totally engulfed in his love,
Dreaming about that first kiss
Counting minutes to meet him
Waiting for him to arrive
And finally it happened
She moaned as his lips brushed her neck
And …Sudden silence
He looked back with gleaming teeth
Blood smeared on his lips
Her limp body at his feet...

In other news I got a mild shock when I finally discovered what my neighbors A and B, who are famous for being addicted to books, read! These pretty-settled-in-life-40-something women dig Mills and Boon, not that I have anything against those type of books but the thought that they assumed I also belonged to that league pained me no end.

As customary lemme pass this tag of 55 worded short story to Vigs , first rain , Anumita, RT and fatally flawed ,njoy maadi

Oh dear... I have to write that up soon eh !e

~RAUL~ said...

The story seems so so familair. Yessss. Is it Ozzy Osbourne trying to bite a bat on the stage? Surely it is.
As for A & B, you can take your revenge by asking them to read any novel by "Ved Prakash Sharma". Just keep nagging then to read it and you yourself pretend to be a great fan. Rest will follow :) :)

#3tiYo>B_shyo> said...

uuuughhh, too much historical romance..... but uv got talent for that shit.

~RAUL~ said...

Now who is the shivani bhatnagar ? ? the girl from "tandoor kaand"? No the person I am talking about writes those idiotic hindi novels that we get on the bus stand/railways station. Go to any place in north and u'll get to see the truth. He's a legend there :)). So its time for A & B to know abt him.

zombiee said...

she lives through him. He surrounds her very existance now. He has helped her get out of the body to unify the mind and the soul. love is strength.

Senthil said...
