55 Fiction

Here are my humble attempts at 55 Fiction. Read this for details on this art form.

-------------

Tom, the Deviant, in Heaven

Voyeur! You are calling me a voyeur. You blinded me for something you have been doing all your life – invading people’s privacy!


Taxes! It wasn’t the taxes.
She likes horses, likes riding them all over the city – naked. Stark naked! She is a freaking nudist. And you punished me. Blighter!

--------------

A 6-year-old girl, Emily Kent, darted into traffic in Fort Myers, Florida, to save a turtle and was killed when she was hit by a car on Sunday, officials said.

I was taking a shortcut. The hare had been winning the race for so many years.

I wanted to win just once. I’m sorry Emily.

the first one was, let's say, scary. interestingly put though.

The news item in the second is a true Reuters account ... Came in the Hindu a few months back

First one - he he - always thought Lady Godiva was just after a few kicks when she was riding around naked ... poor Tom

Men never think.
