Six Word Stories

Summary: The final event for these Olympics is exactly as it sounds, write a complete story in exactly six words.

How to enter: Please post your entry in this topic. You may only enter one story, but you may change your entry as many times as you want before the 24 hour window closes. Please only post one time.
Let me know if you are affiliated with a team when you post your entry!

Description: Six word short stories are exactly as they sound. You may punctuate the story however you need to in order to get the point across, but the story must have exactly six words.
Example -
For Sale:
Baby Shoes,
Never Worn.

You can also look back at the 2016 or the 2018 entries for additional examples!

A note on judging: In the spirit of fairness, I haven't been keeping track of the medal counts for individuals or our fabulous teams as to not accidentally sway my decision. I will be looking for creativity, whether or not it's a story (rather than six words that sound nice together), and emotion! Any emotion! Light/dark, sad/goofy, fun/serious, any topic, anything goes! Wow me :)

Ends: (automatically adjusted to your timezone)
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

Ask a Therapist!
I want to beta read your novel!

Ask me anything. Talk to me about anything. Seriously. My PM box is always open <3

The politics of the world may be corrupt, but that does not mean that we must be corrupted ourselves.

Team Chickens!
Spoiler! :

Blood. Tears. Slit wrists, and silence.
“your highness” is gender neutral

so if you are ever confused about my pronouns

that’l work

alternatively “your majesty”, “my liege”, and “supreme overlord”

*please note “your grace” is also acceptable
