Well the story 7 could be apocryphal, but the anonymous writer wrote in a college class as s/he was assigned to write a short story, in as few words as possible, covering the themes of religion, sex and mystery. And this story was rated A+:


Story 7:


Good God, I’m pregnant; I wonder who did it.

Jesus Christ!!!!!  ;D

David Williams, the author of www.writersdock.com gives his fourteen-word effort, which he calls  The Proposal:


Story 8:

He asked her as the lift gave way. She smiled. They fell, in love.


I loved these 14 words as these captured at least 14 romantic movies inside them  :)
