50 Words

Here are two 50 word stories that I plan on submitting to a 50-word project. Thought you might like to read them.

50 words before dawn
I walked out to the end of the jetty at the inlet before dawn. It was dreary outside and I wanted the overcast to just melt. I guess I was hoping for the sunrise to warm my eyes. But instead I burnt my stomach by spilling coffee down my chest.

50 words after waking up
There was something tickling the back of my legs. It was a spider. I hate spiders. I slapped it off my calf in a girlish manner as I realized the owners of the backyard were staring at me out their window. One smiled, the other laughed. And I was naked.

Tell me what you think.
