who’s the animal anyway…

he knew from the smell,

she was nearby,

mating season it was,

carefully, quietly he lurked,

not wanting to scare her,

as he climbed the ridge,

there she was,

bristling and beautiful,

camouflaging himself he approached

SUDDENLY

a BEAST in a jeep

a gun in hand

pointed at him

KABOOM

Save the Tiger

A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:

  1. Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
  2. A setting,
  3. One or more characters,
  4. Some conflict, and
  5. A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
  6. The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.
