50 Word Stories

The Room

The doors were locked. The lights shut. Even the clock stopped clicking. Still, here I am, lying in my bed, staring into the never ending darkness of this room; whose every belonging shouts out her name and takes the life out of my already dead soul. Every time. All. The. Time.

(Prompt: Not enough sleep)


Danger Sign

“Wanna go to my place?” he asked abruptly. “Sure.” I blurted. And in no time, we were rushing to his apartment, two blocks away from college.

A peculiar smelling room, everything out of place.

And then I saw it. Staring back at me.

Most dreaded danger sign.

The Ash Tray.

(Prompt: Ash Tray)


Anything For You

“Honey! You know I don’t like this salad! Why did you order it?”

“Babe, it’s good for you. The doc said so. Remember?”

“Yeah…. fine. Just ’cause you’re saying. But on one condition.”


“Take these ugly green beans away pleeease. They taste funny.”

“Haha. Done.”

“So sweet!”

He smiled.

(Prompt: Green Beans)


My first attempt at writing any kind of fiction or story!
Liked it? Hated it? Lemme know. 🙂

  1. I also enjoyed the one with the Ash Tray because it felt like the most complex storyline 🙂 The fact that she considered the Ash Tray a danger sign could mean so many things. Perhaps she is an addict who recently gave up smoking and doesn’t want to be tempted into it again. Or perhaps she hates smoking in all its forms and now that she’s found out her man smokes, their relationship is going to severely downhill. 🙂 It opened up lots of possibilities.

  2. Hahaha, these are really good and so fun to read especially cause of their brevity. Yeah, The room was my favorite too 😁 but the Ash tray on the other hand has so much potential for more. Really great, all three stories.

  3. Your first attempts are great attempts. I too would like to hear more that ash tray 🙂 but my favourite is The Room. There is something pulling and attractive about it, something relatable. Do write more, please.

  4. Wow! Thank you so much! ❤
    So you also want a sequel to the ash tray?
    I agree. Many people might be able to relate to the room. But attractive? Seriously? I thought it would appear kinda dark! 😀

  8. Wow! I have to say that The Room is not a story in the classic sense and almost falls into the story poem category, but i don’t actually care. It is an excellent piece of writing. Anyone who can capture the feeling of a sleepless night in 50 words–well I would read more of your writing!

    The Ash Tray is the best “story” of the three. I like the twist and the character development.

    • Omg! Thanks for the lovely response and feedback.. It’s so good to hear from you, Cynthia.
      I really enjoyed writing for this challenge, hope you have read two more stories I wrote later for the same.
      N I agree about The Room, it might be sort of poetic!
      Thank you, thank you so much. M glad you liked them both. 🙂 🙂
