Saturday, 1/17/09 - "THE PLANE"



every Friday, compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. if you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...post your story and report to the boss G-Man!



"THE PLANE"

Metal screaming, screeching, twisting, turning, all around me, surrounding me. The lap belt snug and tight.

There is total silence, a hush. Are others alive? Am I alive?


I wiggle my toes, fingers, hands, feet - they're all as they should be.


I stand up without unbuckling, slowly drifting through the solid metal of the airplane.

By Prayer Girl


NOTE: To clarify the above 55 words - they describe a dream I had of my own death.

Sometimes (Often?) a 55-word short story is more interesting than a BOOK. Anna, you have really, gotten the rhythm of this thing.

Congratulations! Good job.

Peace, Happiness. Serenity. LOVE,
from Steve

Excellent 55 for your first try Prayer Girl.

Oh so sad for her but wasn't it incredible that all those people survived on the Hudson?

That was a fantastic 55, especially for a first try. Great stuff!
