VSS 003: The Accidental Suicide

The Accidental Suicide
Very Short Story (VSS) 03 

It was plain bad luck.

They drove to their favorite spot on the hill station to catch the sunrise. They arrived in time and parked. Holding hands, they came to the edge to catch the most magnificent of sun-rise.

That’s when their own car hit them from behind and pushed them over the edge, a 1000 feet fall broken only by boulders and rocky edges. Damn the hand brake that didn’t hold.

Next day, it was reported as suicide, with people wondering why the happy couple committed suicide. It was a love marriage after all; arranged by their families.


Quick Note: Very Short Stories are approx./max. 99 word stories that i am going to write through the year. These very short stories are part of my writing resolutions of 2017. My target is to write at least 50 VSS this year.
