Trudy practiced her forms, punches and kicks, determined to exact precision. With a newly earned green belt in the closet, she tooled the city dressed in powerful confidence. Epiphany struck when she stood beside three massive men on the subway platform.

This reminds me of a story a friend told. One of his friends felt safe one night when a mugger approached because he had a brown belt. It turned out the mugger had a black. Wisdom followed the loss of his wallet.

I was struck by the higher stakes (stolen wallet) of your three sentence story and how yours ended with a truism/moral/takeaway, making it feel like a fable. It was interesting to compare it to mine. Thanks for sharing it!

Well, I cheated with 4 sentences 😉 But I would never have come up with it on my own. I’m learning from your excellent stories. 🙂
