Two Facets of One-Sided Love

Here are a few more specimens of 55-word fiction.
Well I'll be honest.I haven't put in much of an effort while coming up with these 'cause I am fairly busy these days with college and stuff.But I can't let my blog lie ignored right?And hey 55-word stories are kind of fun to write.
So here goes-


Smile

His heart-breakingly beautiful smile brought a flicker of hope into Shruti's darkened world.Without him she wouldn't have been able to survive her parents' divorce.She felt so lucky to have him.

But then one day he stopped smiling, stopped waiting for her after class and stopped taking her calls. And Shruti's world collapsed.

His Fair Lady

She was the picture of perfection this evening. Clad in a flaming red-and-gold sari she looked divine. His heart swelled with pride. There was so much he wanted to say as he stood before the woman he loved.
But all he could manage was a forced smile and a 'Congratulations. Have a happy married life!'

it's a very difficult thing to keep them inside the word limit and yet express clearly what you want to say...congratulations....you have succeeded on both counts...on a topic where sometimes a 1000 words are not enough..

@Nightwing and Sayandeep:Thanks for your kind words.Though my heart wasn't in it while I was writing these..I'd try to come up with better ones next time.

there is always a scope for betterment of creative skills of an artist...but these r certainly too good..
these two short(ultra-short) stories simply reveal the creative genius in you... hone it up to create marvels..
