====================================================================


“Ding…Dong…Ding...” rang the bells. Christ was born. Adam hurriedly hid the bloodied spade hoping no one had seen him. Everyone was at church, thus he had seized the opportunity. He put fire to the tissues he wiped his hand in. Justice was done. This Christmas, Adam had learnt, truth is stranger than fiction.

This is my first 55Fiction. Hope you like it :)

  5. I applaud your attempt at writing 55-fiction. I liked the build up of the suspense and the atmosphere, Snuffles, but I must confess I couldn't tie the last line to the rest of it. Maybe an end-note would help elaborate it a bit?

    All the best :)

  6. I read it thrice to understand the crux of the subject - Its challenging for a writer to make a post -where readers take time to absorb.
    All the best for BAT.

  7. Not easy to knit a story in a micro fiction. A good attempt. Did not really get the end, though.

  11. As mixi pointed out , an end note would throw more light into the concept . Nonetheless when read as a 55 fiction the story is perfectly weaved . good effort ! Keep writing :)

  12. Modern society has lost a sense of sin. A resolution to confess the sin suffices for true repentance.
    Hope I am not confused.. Liked the concept... a lot!!

  13. Though its confusing for a naive person like me about the complex terms in understanding the climax :-? but Im happy to know what 55- fiction is...:)
