Micro-fiction #2

He was clever. With black colors he could fix faces, souls, tastes and vanities in a sort of shameless census. One day he told me “No, it doesn’t work. I’m looking for a more genuine humanity”, then fell silent and began to remove the seeds from the watermelon.

    Love the micro-fictions. I wish they were more popular with bigger audiences. They seem to fit so well with our culture. Enjoying yours.

    Thanks for your comment. I play this game with myself: a brand new character must do something simple but out of the ordinary – in just 5 minutes and max 4 lines… sometimes it works fine, most ot the time it doesn’t. 🙂
