A li'l Difference - 55 Fiction

“I may not forgive myself ever. I am so ashamed of my behavior that I almost hate myself. I wonder how you could forgive me. May be because these things have never bothered you.”


I could not stop smiling. “These things may have bothered me. Perhaps that’s why I have forgiven you.”


What is 55 Fiction? It is a fiction story, with all the basic elements of a narrative (plot, characters, setting, conflict), in 55 words or less(A non-negotiable rule).


A day or two back kajal celebrated her 100th post ceremony in a grand way. so here is my small token of love for her.

Dear kajal-the pink orchid, hope you will love this small token of love. May god bless you always. :)

take care :)


  1. Hmm.

    Written amazingly,some carefully chosen words thrown together to bring out a wonderful result here.

    Keep enthralling the audience as always.

    Expectations really gallops and maybe your next post would exemplify your diverse abilities to portray your brilliance.
