A 55-fiction expert (read: Shruti at Hits and Misses) told me to try them myself. I was completely unsure of myself and had been spinning many, all lame, in my head, when suddenly inspiration hit me! This is my first attempt, only posted as I think it might have some semblance to good writing (to be honest).
What I now want is for every reader to be completely honest, brutally so. Please I need your opinion and advice too. Good, bad, ugly- doesn’t matter and I’ll publish every comment. Promise!
Since Blog-world is indeed under the 55-fiction siege, who am I to resist it!
“The Last Act”
With unfathomable eyes she watched as he walked down the wet, broken path, shoulders slumped, believing every untruth she had uttered. He’d never look for her again. He’d forget and love again. He would never know that there were only a few days left. For her. And as the tears brimmed over, inexplicably, she smiled.
Thanks for all those nice words about me in the beginning!!

ders always scope fr improvement….yet dis is very good in itself! likd it! 🙂
wow…i loved it:)..beautiful dear..
Very well written. Proves we dont have to write essays and essays to convey a meaning/story. Great 🙂
Thanks everyone! For all the kind words!
Thanks for the wondrous words of encouragement! But I doubt it when the next one will come! 😛
Yeah, why did she smile? Kya pata! I just wrote what I saw! 😀
The nexr one will be a sixer off a no-ball and then nowadays there are free-hits! 😀
But… errr, you might have to wait a while! lol!
Thanks for liking the 55-fiction!
Tell me something is anything akin to emotional has to be Bollywood! Why can't that be Hollywood? Or anything else for that matter? Or we are not real people? 🙂
@ My Namesake
I love the comments you leave. Thanks for saying there's room for more. Really wouldn't want this to be the limit! And your commendations are very valuable! Thanks again! 🙂
Cliche huh? I love cliches, don't you? 🙂
After all my whole life is full of them… happily ever after… and all that! 🙂
Wait a moment, isn't life itself one?
Even the cynic is a cliche! lol! 😀
nope i dont love cliches..happily ever after?? till when the after point lasts..and if life is a cliche are you suggesting that the word unique,individual hold no sway over our lives..and why the mention of cynic here..free
55s were unknown to me, until now, so color me impressed! I'm amazed how you told a complete story, full of emotion and an ironic twist that leaves me wondering about their past and their futures… so well done!!
Glad you found my blog. I see you're in India, a country I'm enchanted with but have yet to travel to. It's on my list!!
Yeah, happily ever after indeed! It bears on your outlook how after! 😀
I am a very logical person so I know there's logic in the illogic! But that's metaphysics! lol! So I don't think I can explain to you,till when the after point lasts! What are ponts in the infinite, space or time?! lol!
And 'life' isn't a cliche? When was the last time it used as just the scientific word it is? Is its meaning individual and unique and not overused? define life for me then please, maybe I don't know! 🙂
Take no offence please, but this is just for the sake of the conversation! 🙂
Am having fun!
By the way, why do you always write “free”?
hey dera .. excellent psot… and cant believe itsa start 55F… uhave really wrote awesome…
and rewarded for it too..
u have been tagged …. check my post
of course just for fun.so no offense.
the ever after needs atleast to be around some arbitary point in the line of time.and if there is logic in it why do u term it illogical..metaphysics??dont try and give it a fancy name(no offense..russell peters)defining life am too small for it..but living a cliched life.. that depends on the camera and screenplay..
and about free..see http://vishvaksaen.blogspot.com/2009/04/philosophy-of-free.html
Hahaha! You didn't get what I was saying! There is no single point, it is always. Infinite. If you really want a point, then it is when I learned to live, literally!
And metaphysics is not a fancy name, as you say it, but it really exists. And there is logic in illogical. Why is it then called illogical? Because it is judged by the person who is looking at it. What is illogical or cliched to you may not be so to me! Like the 55 fiction, you didn't like the ending, others did, for whatever reasons, but both are right in their own way. Someone's logic seems illogical to you? So what is logic and illogic, is it in black and white? Can anything ever be!
And who's talking about living a clichéd life??? Life is a cliché when you say “mere life mein itni problem hain”, “life ne mere sath aisa kiya”, “yeh meri life hain, mein jo chahun karoonga' etc etc. 🙂
Whatever… I'm preaching! 😛
It was fun having this conversation! 🙂
@ One Sassy Girl
I am doubly glad now that I found your blog! 🙂
I wanted to write a post on that topic you talked about! But wasn't sure how sensitive the male readers of my blog are! 😛
So had to refrain. But it made me a fan of your sass a'rite! 🙂
I'm honoured to have you on my blog!! 😉
Good start! I am also new to this thing!But I think You expressed yourself nicely in this one!!
fancy name-see russell peters to undrstnd..and the thing you say the same thing i meant by camera and splay.anyways one deosnt have to win every argument.we can always agree to disagree.free
Wish there were few more words to your fiction … “And that was just a joke” ! 😦 .. yeah I wish, I don't like sad endings !
Wonderful attempt @ 55, and I'm sure you'll be doing it much better 🙂
take care ! 🙂
“Oh just leaving a comment to tell you, that you are in my list for an award! Simply for Torture!!! 😀
Oh, also 'cause I like your blog! lol!” – the comment on my blog ..
Where is the TORTURE and most importantly the award 😦 ??
Sourav…in love with me and life
**Reply on my chat box**
You are in my hit-list, would send Osama, Bin and Laden, all three together to your place to give you “Get well soon Maamu” flowers !! 😛
P.S. Never knew Osama, Bin and Laden are three different people ! 😛
*sigh* you still don't see any award on my blog !! 😛
Don't dare stick a stick on thr back .. I meant, don't hit them 😛
P.S. Send me a req on Orkut or facebook, if you don't mind, coz it's better talking there, and would obviously love to know you more 🙂
You can get the links to my a/c's thru my blog … expect to see you soon there 😛
Hmmm… Touching.. Very touching indeed. Though I don't agree with the girls decision. Think what the guy will feel when he comes to know the truth (which he WILL in this age of IT, social media and what not). Anyways, each to his own.
BTW, I am following you and have blogrolled you. Cheers!!
CHECK THE COMMENT SECTION OF THE BLOG A TON VOTING POST. Vipul HAS OPENED THE COMMENT SECTION FOR PUBLIC VIEWING…..SEE WHAT I HAD WRITTEN ABOUT YOU………….
Kahani mein Twist!!
Damn good! 🙂
A wonderful first attempt!
Keep writing more!! 🙂
I agree. I'll add the date next time and make it to the 19th century!
I think that should do it. Just because 55-F is of 21st century's, the story doesn't have to be so. 🙂
Thanks for following and blogrolling me! Am honoured! 🙂
Thanks a lot, Ma'am! Praises from you are all the encouragement I need. Please come back again. Really appreciate your words! 🙂
Thank you, again.
