Fifty-Word Romance

The challenge, or exercise, is to write a romantic story in exactly fifty words. There should be a premise and a conclusion. The title, which should be only a word or two, isn't part of the fifty-words.

An example from me:

Hope?

Our parents raged with hateful words. Our skins, cultures and religions were all offended by our association.

We fled the storm to marry in secret.

Now our children are spoilt with too many festivals, wrapped in grandparents' love. Together the families defy their narrow-minded neighbours.

If only it were true.


I have written two How-Tos to help with fifty-word stories:

Separated

It has been a long time, since I last saw her.

Would she understand why I never called; never passed by?
Would she know, what happened? How, sometimes time, life and the world come between two persons?
Would she accept, that I missed her?
* Daddy, look! My tooth came out! *

How i met your Father

As a waitress, I turned with disgust as the big man slapped my butt
"I saw that" said the cute guy with dreads "But I wish it was me!"
"Slapping or slapped?"
He laughed,
I laughed
He came back the next day
He asked me out
I said "yes"



Nailed in words but needs ooomph - but hey i like the challenge

April

April found a book of Japanese haiku. She opened it, finding tiny poems about frogs, blossoms, the wind and the snow. Not once did she read what his lips tasted like, nor the taste of honey between her legs.

Then he kissed her, and touched her lips, so she knew.

May

May turned the page. She saw virgin white paper, crisp and new, so full of promise. The boy would sweep her away, breathless, once he came by and wrote himself down.

She couldn't wait. She began to write and oh, he was wonderful. So much easier to write him herself.

June

June looked up. A shadow fell across the table, darkening her page.

He smiled. His eyes were the same colour as the sky. She wondered if at night his eyes would go black, whether her tears would fall on a rainy day. After a year she found out. So sad.

Observing

She is watching him.

She checks out his toned body. Her eyes move down, over his chest, to his groin.

When she leaves; her shoulder ‘accidentally’ brushes his shoulder. She looks back and flicks her hair.

He smiles, but does not take the bait.

While passing me, she hisses, “Creep!”

Thank you for the above fifty word stories. My 15 x 50 set is posted in the Valentine's Contest.

They aren't as easy to write as they look when posted. Congratulations to those who have posted so far.

I like this - it leaves you wondering what happened, but wanting to look into those eyes

I don't have a romantic bone in my body, so I'm going to challenge myself.

Finally, a Happy Ending

Jesse looked up from texting. His breath shuddered to a stop as Will dropped down opposite him, his eyes raw with emotion.

“I missed you too.”

Jesse swallowed hard. “Can we never do that again?”

“What, put a million miles between us?”

“Yeah.”

Will took his hand. “I promise.”

It Was Meant To Be

He gazed up at me with a fistful of wild flowers.

He pressed them into my hand as our eyes met.

My lips opened slightly as I pressed them into his.

We embraced, then sauntered down the hill, shot by Cupid's arrow.

We knew our love was meant to be!

I didn't want to be mean, but I needed her to end it. I treated her badly, as she deserved. Nobody is that good, that sweet. She lies when she says she loves me. How could she?

The day she looked at me with pleading, tearful eyes, I believed her.
