Saw this the other day (via Shoe-fiend) - a link to the Hemingway Challenge. A short story in six words. Since I've never been able to resist a challenge, here goes:
His letter arrived, signed with bulletholes.
Afterwards, even the roses were bloodstained.
"What? You call that a ring?!"
She's five. He likes them young.
"Heads." "Right. It'll be decapitation then."
His cyanide pill was a placebo.
P.S. My apologies for the slightly macabre tone of these stories (?). It is the Hemingway challenge after all. Is bullfight one word or two, I wonder?
