This was a writing exercise I did a few years back in my creative writing class. We were told we had to write a 50 word short story that told a tale, was cunning and descriptive. :)
The words dropped; lead spiders from the paper heavy upon the floor, shattering the windows (glass shards biting the skin). I howled in pain at the sea of faces - a goodbye letter. As an actor, remembering to laugh nervously at the spectators, the malicious joke was played: audience betrayed.
