55er - Handicapped, but why???


As the name implies, 55-ers are posts which contain 55 words or less.
A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
·         Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
·         A setting,
·         One or more characters,
·         Some conflict, and
·         A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.

This is my second attempt.

But she was gone, back to her disabled world – one tear glistening on her cheek, glaring wrathfully at her wheelchair.

In a different world, he too logged off wistfully, thinking he wasn’t worth it anyway, and reached for his crutches.
