55 word story: Insomnia



Tia plunged the knife deep into the sleeping vagrant’s heaving chest. Death was instantaneous. Having carried out two murders for the night, she checked her watch. 4 am. It was time to try some sleep. She headed home.

I put down my pen, having finished two chapters for the night. The clock chimed 4 am.
