#55wordchallenge – “Untitled” #flashfiction (UPDATE Winner of Overachiever award)

This story has been awarded an Overachiever Award

In Lisa’s own words “the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less.” Each week writers pick one of three images as inspiration.


This week using all three may qualify for an over achiever award:

Mother with Child

Woman and Teddy Bear


Lost Teddy Bear

Here’s my entry if you would rather not see the original version:

by Dr. Mike Reddy (@doctormikereddy) [55 words]

When young I hugged him. When he could sit he hugged Bear. When he could walk Bear hung by a dangled paw. When he was hit Bear flew, then lay still. With him.

Later, I followed in his footsteps. Dangling Bear. Stepping out. Being hit. Flying. Bear stayed behind. I flew on. He hugged me.
