Friday’s 55 Fiction: The Truth
55 Fiction is a form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.
She was inconsolable. Her eyes were all swollen… red, but the tears were just flowing…
Memories flashed in front of her as she lay alone that night.
He was the best… the best husband, the best friend, the best lover and the best actor… and only she knew him best.
He had to be disposed.

@ Vipul: Why the confusion?
Was he unfaithful…May be, coz only she knew him best.
I guess, focus on ‘the best actor’..you will get a different thought.
What do you think now?? 😀

“”He was the best… the best husband, the best friend, the best lover and the best ACTOR… and only she knew him best””
Confusion ends with “actor”.
This is a Masterpiece!!!!
To paraphrase one of my recent post titles:–
“”The Shilpa’s Masterpiece!!””

yeah ofcourse i noticd the BEST ACTOR nd it made things clear uptill tht point.. bt sumhow d last wrd DISPOSED totally changed the meaning of d whole story. I mean it is this wrd which confused me 🙁

Well, I thought that the husband would be dead as usual but this one is too good!
The relationship died!

ouch.. hardhitting…the worst truth or the most biting reality is the reality of death..
August 8, 2009 10:58 am|
Although this story is short, I truly envisaged my end in this much coveted type – die as a beloved soul.
Keep it up Shilpa! Lemme give a hand on 55 fiction too 🙂

You are becoming a pro in this form must say and Friday 55 …so does this mean we’ll see 55-Fiction every Friday ? If so then it’ll be great
August 9, 2009 8:43 am|
I sometimes like such ending…cold-blooded and straight! “He had to be disposed”!
August 10, 2009 3:28 am|

@ Musings of a lonely traveler: Can’t do it still. U may sort this problem by making your comment section as a pop-out. You may go to Settings then Comments and then Comment form placement and then select Pop up window.
Did you try posting the comment as an outsider??
A friend had similar problem, and was sorted out by this pop-up window comment box! Try it!! 🙂

Hi Shilpa! I altered comment settings to Pop-up window now. Also checked posting vide another account. Hope it works now!
