50 word story -(Scarlet Hair).

Is it really possible to capture the imagination of the reader with as few words as possible in a story? Therefore, allowing them to imagine the novel. The shortest novel, according to some, is Ernest Hemingway’s; “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.”

Of course there is no title, and so like mine -untitled – let the privileged reader decide.
