     His heart
~ Just Married ~
     Her knife.
My entry for Six Word Stories' Opposites Contest.

As someone who uses adverbs and adjectives like ketchup (i.e. on everything), I think minimalistic writing is a fun step outside my comfort zone.

All writers over 30 to all writers under 30: "You're overwriting!"

All writers under 30: "Thank you for the good advice." *ignore good advice* 
(Satire :giggle:)

This is your first SWS, isn't it? ^^ I really, really like the formatting and the shape of it. The ~ Just Married ~ looks like a decorative sign (well, naturally ^^") but also a tattoo. It's intriguing how the opposites aren't definite. I couldn't say specifically what they are. Could be love and hate, hope and disappointment, murderer and victim ^^" "Heart" could be literal and/or metaphorical. It seems (to me) that this could be a story about a grisly murder. Or it could be a story about the new husband being vulnerable and offering up all his love and his new wife wounding him. Or perhaps it's not a married couple at all - it's a marrying up of flesh and weapon. Those are the newly weds. Or perhaps I'm thinking too much ^^

Good luck in the competition! :w00t:
