    Good stories, ST. The above would be yet more effective, IMO, if you took out the word "Rejection" leaving the interpretation to the reader.

    I contribute 6 word stories to Nicola Auckland's weekly contest. She provides a prompt, organizes voting and announces winners. I have never won, but that's not why I participate: https://nicolaauckland.com/category/...ory-challenge/

    Here are some of my entries:

    Prompt: funny
    Our guru rambled. We took notes.
    Posted March 11, 2017

    Prompt: temptation
    That switch shuts it all down.
    Posted March 22, 2017

    Prompt: transgression
    You didn’t think I would mind?
    Posted March 25, 2017

    Prompt: confusion
    Which UFO did what to you?
    Posted April 1, 2017

    Prompt: awakening
    He yawns, stretches. “Who are you?”
    Posted April 8, 2017

    Prompt: outcast
    Even those idiots don’t want me.
    Posted April 15, 2017

    Prompt: leave
    “I’m going to Mars!” (Good riddance.)
    Posted April 22, 2017

    Prompt: dare
    What a chicken! Want to skydive?

    Thanks, Danik. Good advice. 'Rejection' makes it seven words too. Doh!

    So: Two theatre tickets, one seat empty.

    Rejection could be a title to your 6 word story, Silas Thorne. Although titles could become the story.

    @WhiteRabbit "The story is there's no story." That might be the problem with six words stories in general.

    @Danik "Wild waves washed away his anguish." This gets my imagination thinking of death and what the anguish might have been.

    Good idea ST

    I liked the idea of the title.

    @WhiteRabbit "The story is there's no story." That might be the problem with six words stories in general.
    I agree. 6 words is not enough.

    @Danik "Wild waves washed away his anguish." This gets my imagination thinking of death and what the anguish might have been.
    Yes, that´s the idea, Yes/No.
