Friday’s 55 Fiction : Caught In Her Own Web?

55 Fiction is a form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.
Caught In Her Own Web?

Narrow crowded by-lanes are always a sight. The vehicles honking incessantly; the hawkers shouting, trying to outdo each other; women haggling with the vendors, children eyeing the toys, greedily… she observed nonchalantly.

Listlessly, she bought a few things and rushed out. “Perfect!” she smirked.

“Madam, your bag”…said the panting boy.

And the bomb exploded.

    @ Vipul: I don’t know, Microsoft word count showed it to be 55, but when I counted it manually (or is it mentally!), it was 56!
    So deleted the kites, as suggested.
