For Matthew’s 5th false 50 word story, he chose to take his words from a story that featured in issue 237 of Fear In Fear Magazine, called My Gloves, My Self, below you can read the short that was posted.
“It’s not fair, it’s not the way it should’ve went down, I could’ve done better,” he yells as he drives punch, after punch into the bag, his knuckles split open, bloody, his face, bruised and swollen.
“There’s no shame in defeat,” a voice says from the shadows.
“I should’ve won!”
If you are interested, you can go HERE and read Matthew’s post of my original story he titled Strength. You are more than welcome, as always if inspiration hits, to expand the story yourself, all I ask is that you post a link in the comments below so I can showcase it on the blog.
