‘Don’t do it, dear! Please don’t!’
‘You will kill us both!’
‘I cannot take the pain anymore!’
‘Please…’ he begged.
She jumped into the sea.

I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?

The fish threw them back onto the land. They shout, “to small, to small.”
Ahaha! Now that was unexpected! “Too much passion”… :))
Great job, Vinc! Mighty great job!
That woman in the image looks much like Julie.
Same height (exceedingly tall), same hair, same allure.
And she is well-dressed too.
Julie won’t jump into the sea, will she? Certainly not. She is most busy cooking delicious Polish foods.
Well then I hope I won’t drop into boiling water!
Thank you, my sweet friend, for all the compliments :).
Sleep well, and dream even better!
The pesky smile that glued itself to my face when I read the last words of this story. I tried to stop it, trust me, i did. But couldn’t. So nice work. I don’t smile often.
Ilaye or Gloria?
Let it be Ilaye.
A girl shouldn’t smile too often, or her smiles will lose their power. 😉
I love short stories and now I can say I love 50-Word Stories! Very clever!
I tip my hat to a Book Club Mom. 🙂
I agree with the director. Passion sucks and the sea is already filled with tears.
And yet I’ve heard that Millie’s whereabouts are as dry as the desert.
I’ve just nominated you for Blog of the Year Award, 2013 🙂
You do not have 50 word stories copyrighted do you? I thought about doing a 50 word story myself. I enjoy your blog. Just found it last week. New to blogging myself
