Remembered, Forgotten / Days Go On

The challenge: To create a story that is exactly fifty five words long.

Remembered, Forgotten

Ducking under the convenience store counter, John finds a dirty, long forgotten coin. He
looks at the penny, thinking about the man on it. The man who freed the slaves, who fought a
war. It then occurs to John: If this man is only on the penny, what chance does he have of being
remembered
?

Days Go On

Nobody entered the house to find 67 year old Lucy at the bottom of the stairs. Her kids
didn’t visit her for Thanksgiving, one having sent an e-card and the other having forgotten
altogether. No friends to discover her, no pet to go find a neighbour. Maybe it was best that
nobody found Lucy.
