Write a story in exactly 55 words.
A disaster lay before him. Cars came from every direction, all on the verge of crashing into one another. He could see it all before it happened. Bodies laying on the ground, limbs broken, blood coloring metal and glass and tarmac.
But should he dial the emergency number? Would it be the help he sought?
This story is interesting! The crashed could've happened for so many reasons. Was he drunk? On drugs? Speeding? & so forth!ReplyDelete
Was this a psychic trying to stop the crash? That's always a dilemma because any action one takes to stop a premonition may instead be the trigger ...ReplyDelete
Hmmm depends. Does he/she have powers to see it before it happens? I just don't think it's right to change what is suppose to be. Excellent 55 Nessa :)ReplyDelete
Now this one is really intriguing with a marvellous last line.ReplyDelete
scary picture...might not be quite what he is looking for...counst be "beast"ly...teehee. fun 55!ReplyDelete
Lots to think about there, and the number on the back of that car? Hope he doesn't call that number as the emergency number...ReplyDelete
My 55 is Everything I Lack
If he calls emergency, he's going to have a lot of paperwork to fill out.ReplyDelete
A lot to contemplate on this one ~ nice job Nessa. Intriguing.ReplyDelete
I'm up after a few weeks off:
Friday Flash 55 ~ Pride
Kinda like those movies...is it Flash Forward? No...can't think of the movie titles where the kid can see deaths of his friends.ReplyDelete
Anyway,........being that I'm babbling again, I'll move on. I really like your 55...always do.
Here's mine Take Pleasure - 101
Have a super terrific weekend.
It is the Weekend, TGIF!ReplyDelete

Keep the FUNNIES in your weekends!
WOW... Nessa, this is intense and you change the whole fiction just with your last line!ReplyDelete
You really should publish your work!
He should pinch himself. If he wakes up then he should roll over and go back to sleep.ReplyDelete
If he doesn't wake up then scream. That will wake someone else up to help him.
And if neither of those work, he should pick up his toys like a good boy and get ready for supper.
BTW, that was a 55 word comment for you.
Wonder how 911 would react to a disaster-to-be call?ReplyDelete
ESP or inanity? Exactly what number does he have in mind?ReplyDelete
Well done, Nessa!
The tarmac, a plane crash? 666 would they pick up only those who couldn't be SAVED??ReplyDelete
My 55: My Invisibility
Dreams of Perfection: Or all of them together.ReplyDelete
Quilly: ...that let a serial killer live to kill again?
Thom: Ah, you believe in preordained fate?
Anthonynorth: A conundrum.
Brain Miller: You score 100% for being the first to get it.
Peter Stone: You get a great big A+ too.
Doug: That could be hell.
Chef Kar: I hope he thinks carefully.
Hootin' Anni: i know what you mean and I can't think of the name either. You have a wonderful weekend too. It's Spring!
Shakira: As soon as I can find someone to publish for me!
Jim: You have given him lots of choices. Does he get desert?
Secret Agent Woman: I don't think we should test it.
Alice: I think we have a 3rd winner.
Buzzard: And you make the 4th who got it. Yours is a very good question. That would make a good story.
hmmm. I guess I am too literal to get this story. Ask Quilly. She knows how dense I am. LOL.ReplyDelete
Reminds me of that show about the guy that got tomorrow's news today... what to do? what to do?ReplyDelete
something diabolic about this one... great food for thoughtReplyDelete
Assuming this was "photo inspired" I love it. Sign of the beast always stimulates the imagination. Thanks for stopping by to read my 55 and for your kind words.ReplyDelete
This makes me want to know more!ReplyDelete
Well done, Nessa..I can imagine the whole scene in front of me.ReplyDelete
loving the micro 55 fiction :)ReplyDelete
I always feel like I'm on the verge.ReplyDelete
What a moment, what a decision.ReplyDelete
My kids are very much into Kung Fu Panda, in which the old turtle remarks that 'a man often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it'. Your story reminded me of that -- lots of food for thought!
Gigihawaii: You are not dense. It is pretty vague.ReplyDelete
Melli: Yeah. One of those philosphical things.
Juliana: Diabolic is exactly right. Another winner.
Mama Zen: I agree.
Monkey Man: Not the number you would normally dial in an emergency. Another champion of awareness.
Jennifer: In this case, you might not.
Unknown Mami: I hope you have strong toes.
Susan: I like that. I will remember that. Very wise turtle, as they tend to be.ReplyDelete
Hmmm. A little tricky, this is. Photo leads one to believe it's a car crash but tarmac means plane. Very good. 666 indeed.ReplyDelete
very cool love a good blood bath! But you need that mysterious Dun Dun Dun music at the end!ReplyDelete
Just like my first driving lesson!ReplyDelete
you got me hooked,ReplyDelete
movie clip alike...
mine is kind of dry,
a new hand,
Thank you for looking at it!
how does that old saying go? Ze who dials the number of the beast trials the slumber of the East, or something...ReplyDelete
really enjoy the way your graphics/photos/visuals always work so well and so tightly with your words...
masterymistery at cosmic rapture
Love it!! As always!!ReplyDelete
This one is intriguing. It raises all sorts of questions.ReplyDelete
What was psychic about this for me was, I witnessed a little rear-ender on the way to work this morning.ReplyDelete
Clever indeed! A thriller in 55 words?ReplyDelete
Yvonne: Tarmac can refer to any paved road although it wouldn't surprise me if the devil threw a plane in there somewhere.ReplyDelete
Moorebloglife: I wish I had thought of that.
Stan Ski: Oh, no. I hope not. ;)
Ji: Thanks. I'm glad you joined the fun.
Masterymistery: I have to look for that saying. It's quite good. And thank-you.
Together We Save: I'm glad you enjoyed.
Shelley Munro: Because we all need more questions. = )
Ronda Laveen: Mine was on the way home.
Stine in Ontario: Only if you were thrilled.
A dilemma for sure. Is he a psychic? Or a schizophrenic? Does he need a physician? Or a psychiatrist? It's a conundrum.ReplyDelete
My 55 is up here.
PattiKen: Keen awareness and madness are closely related.ReplyDelete
They are? oh oh...ReplyDelete
Well, in my CPR classes I tell the students to at least call 911 if you see an emergency but can't help! :DReplyDelete
Interesting 55! :)
