Some 55 word fictions

It happened last night

A young executive was nervously biting her nails. ‘Why did I sleep with him last night’- she mused. Should have resisted, even though he looked irresistible.

Her cell buzzed. It was him.

“Umm…hi Deepak,” she was tentative.

“Hi Ruchi…ummm….after last night.. I realized something….I… umm.. will you marry me.”

“Deepak,….. I’m already married,” she sighed.

An interview with a vampire

A young executive was nervously biting her nails, as she stepped in.

“Good afternoon,” she mumbled.  The CEO was buried in some files.

“Miss Stacy, I can give you the job on one condition.”

“Yes sir,” she enquired.

“You must compromise,” he looked up.

The grin from his face faded on seeing his own daughter.

Nervous nervous

A young executive was nervously biting her nails. Her laptop wasn’t working; files were pending; she had to submit a presentation by evening; and she wanted to pee badly. But her nervous mind was preoccupied.

She dialed a number.

“Is the news bad,” she spoke.

“No mam, good news. Sachin has scored his 100th century.”
