55 word fiction

1. Loyalty
He is loyal to me and rarely complains what food i serve him. In the four years we got together his face sparkles at my sight and accompanies me willingly wherever I want him to. He is unhappy when i fail to respond to his cuddles. Not my poodle as imagined but my dear hubby

2. Jackpot

The neighbour said first thing in the morning "You will hit the jackpot today!" I wondered how he knew my plan to visit Casino. With high spirit I determined to try my luck fully. As I took car out I broke a flower pot by mistake .. My wife shrieked "You have hit Jack’s pot!!!"

3. Stolen kisses
When I move stealthily to her apartment, she takes me in her arms and showers her kisses to my great delight but only when she is alone. Her hubby hates me and shoos me away whenever he sees me. He has a reason. I broke his TV screen once with my tiny cricket bat by mistake.

4. Ideal house
The description in the ad suited my requirements. A house away from others, a garden, long pathway and spacious rooms. Though dark the trees made place cool.The agent showed me all special features and the rent he told was dirt cheap. I knew the answer in the first night itself that it
was haunted.

5. Friendly alert
He whispered to me in the crowded bus stand “Pickpockets are plenty here. Be careful." Immediately I felt my back pocket and sighed with relief. "Thank you for alerting" I said as he came closer and shook my hands. When he took the next bus I felt grateful till I touched my back pocket again.

  5. Fascinating! And a commendable attempt. It takes some effort to pen such short episodes. Reminds me of a wonderful film, "NewYork", in which ten stories were gems of a kind.
