Can you write a sad story using only three words?


Well there are many.
These are some of them.
.

Now let me tell you some real horror stories —
……….
and so on.
.
:p


I don't know, I'll try writing really depressing 3 words sentances.
Let me say I have luckily never had to say any of these, and I hope I never will have to
AND finally
Ok ok ok ok ok.
That's a lie.
I get notifications every 3 minutes from people upvoting other answers, and I was trying to be funny XD.
I doubt this answer will get many upvotes but you can't win them all
So back the the ACTUAL sad stuff.
I know that One day, one time, I will probably have to say one of these.
I am lucky enough that I have never had to day any, as simply thinking about having to say those makes me sad.

Except the last one, I'd probably laugh.
I think I'm hilarious for coming up with that.


With teardrops rolling from his cheeks, a poverty-stricken farmer grievously informed his family , who borrowed a hefty amount of money to purchase seeds after two year’s drought .

Revealed a 12 year old girl to his younger brother when their parents and relatives died in a bomb-blast at marriage ceremony and they were left at neighbour’s home because of exams .

Miserably whispered a young man in distress , after returning from Police station when his complaint was laughed at and refused to be registered .

Told a doctor to a single mother of two innocent kids , whom father was killed by terrorists while serving for country .

A innocent girl told her mother on returning from fields where her illiterate father was working very hard to pay the debt and interest of fraudulent and cruel land lord .

Read the suicide note of a depressed girl whose father send her to Kota, after fighting with his orthodox family …………thinking that his daughter will be first female engineer of village .

Below are some of the three word stories which actually changed story of my life.

For I believe each of us has lost someone or the other in life, we very well know how it feels, right at that moment.
I still remember when my dad made a call to me at 6 a.
m, one fine day when I was just packing my bags for a trip and he uttered the words “Aai (Maternal Grandmom) is no more”.
I can never explain what I felt at that very moment but I never had felt more numb.

These three words have weaved in themselves stories of various colors and emotions.
Right from friendship to relationship, from failure to success, and from life to death.

When this comes from a near one, or someone you respect and means a lot to you, and especially when you did put an effort but things turn out in your favor.
:’(
Thank you, for the read.

See you, again.

And, Hey, Have a great day ahead.
:D


I have a handful of sad stories with just 3 words.

I can write many such sad stories happening around me but I have decided to end this with a happy 3 word story.

THANKS FOR READING :)

No More Hope.


Here is my share,
Thanks for reading.


No, you can’t.
A story has a plot, has a character, has a setting.
The plot has a structure, a character has purpose, and the setting has a description.
A three word sentence cannot weave these threads together.
However, you can write an intruiging three word sentance that, perhaps, hints at those threads, but a four word sentance would be better- at least in English- because a fourth word allows for grammatical structure that is far more difficult, if not impossible to achieve in the words that gets you anywhere close to what you are asking for: an example might be: “Johhny died at sea”.
Character? Well, Johnny, who we know must have lived, because he died, and that is a significant change of character, so….
Ok, check.
Setting? Sea, check.
Plot? Well, not really.
He died, and I suppose the plot could simply be life and death, where life is inferred from the event of death referenced in the sentence, but it’s not really a plot.

Is that a story? A man lived, a man died.
Its like calling a brick, a house- it’s something, but you can’t live in it.


yeah!
[ Finally and personally:
These are the biggest sad stories for me,lol ;-)].

Happy reading!

This is an easy one, and doesn't require me to set the stage.
But… i’ll go ahead and dress it up a bit anyway.

Rememeber that one architect that worked his whole life and oversaw the creation of the Greek pantheon? Yep, neither did I…
Or that one guy who saved the life of Jesus Christ when he almost fell to his death as a kid? Nope, me neither…
Ooh!! The one guy that rescued all those people in the World Trade Center tower after it was hit by a plane? Sorry, I'm drawing a blank.

Here, let's hit a little closer to home:
Your mom’s first words as a baby.
Moms first kiss.
Moms best friend growing up.
Moms favorite teacher.
Moms lucky pencil.
Moms favorite candy.
Moms favorite toy.
Any answers? Any idea? Does anyone even care?
Here's the best part.
Even if you CAN answer these questions, your kids won't.
And after you die, the memory of them goes with you.
So what now? How would you be remembered?
Even if you set the entire world at war, in just a few short years nobody will give a shit.
You'll just be a footnote in a history book.
Even for Hitler, you think anyone remembers the answer to any of the questions above? Nope…
I guess my answer is “NOBODY REMEMBERS YOU”
So, how can you make an impact in life that will last beyond your existance? That's an answer for another Quora question!

Here is my share,
Thanks for reading.


Sad stories are sad for many reasons.
Maybe, we wanted the hero to be lucky and she wasn’t.
Maybe, we wanted the bad guy to turn and he didn’t.

But few stories are sad mostly because of the fact that they are true.
This is one of those stories.

It’s a story we often summarize in just three words.
I’m sure you’ll recognize it.

This story happens 800,000 times every year.

Its title is Suicide – and it’s the saddest story I know.

Mostly because it’s not a work of fiction.
It’s real.
But also because there are so many other three-word stories we can tell to prevent it.

…and, of course, the best human story of all.
The one that’s told far too rarely and can never be told often enough:
“I love you.

I live and breathe stories.
But if there was ever a book I’d like to take off the shelf and replace it with another, it’s this one.

If we all do our part, maybe one day, we’ll tell another three-word story.

“We did it.

He loved her.

By gods, he loved his little princess.
His little girl.
The joy of his life.
His pride.
Yet he was foolish enough to burden his babygirl with his unfulfilled dreams, aspirations and fantasies.
In pursuit of his happiness, he forgot hers.
He lashed at her for every test failed, for every mark lost in the exams.
He compared her with others, hoping to push her towards success.
He took every gift he had ever given her, in hopes of making her realize her potential.

He never realized he would lose her if he kept this up.

In the end, she couldn’t keep up with him anymore.
She had tried everything to make him happy, but nothing brought him joy.
He made her give up her hopes and dreams and coerced her to follow his.
Poor her, she felt worthless and in the sea of life, when you’re aboard a tiny lifeboat, you let go of the burden; throw away all the things that weigh you down.
So, she did just that.

She lightened his load by not existing anymore.

He found her hanging from the ceiling, reaching for the stars she adored.

Then, it dawned on him – he was Icarus and she was his wings.
He had tried to reach for the sky and melted her.

And so he fell.

“This’s mum’s jam.

The story is a sad one.
My mother has a friend who recently lost her mother to cancer.

When the mother’s illness got worse, she, leaving her settled environment in a far country in Europe, came to Turkey to take care of her mother.

She was always there for her through her sick days.

When she was alive, her mother had had quite a lot of food recipes and was quite a cook at home.
One of her signature foods was her jams as many Turkish moms make their own delicious jams.

And when she died, it was hard for my mother’s friend.

Then more than one year passed from her death.
We were together again, comforting her for another loss, I guess.
This time it was her very old father.

We were sitting around a table in her kitchen.
I found her looking at a small jar, there was only a small piece of an orange coloured jam in it.

She then raised her head and started talking to us, me and her two friends.
She said this was her mother’s jam but as there are ways to keep jams older than a year alive, she was keeping it on purpose.
It was like a gift from her late mother.
She knew her mom loved cooking those things.

She said ‘I’m only eating one small piece from this every day’.

It was a very sad moment, and not me but someone else was having it.
But even being a bystander was tough enough.


The famous one by Hemingway is: “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.

That’s more than three words, so let’s shorten it and make the story darker.

“For sale: Baby.

We can make it more relevant to modern slavery too.

“For sale: Daughter.

Maybe make it mercenary.

“For sale: Friendship.

Or market it to a very specific kind of customer.

“For sale: Soul.
