Coffee: TTTT

These stories are a part of a contest held by Terribly Tiny Tales. The rules said:
  1. The stories have to contain the word coffee.
  2. The stories cannot exceed 140 characters each.
  3. There can be at most three stories per person.
  4. The last date was the 20th of May, 2013 AD (which is the reason that I'm posting this today).
My Three Terribly Tiny Tales, then, were:

Story 1
He held her head down inside the tank full of milk. She struggled, but her body grew stiff soon.

"I told you I wanted my coffee black."

***

Story 2
The war was over. The victorious army killed, plundered, and raped. He took another sip of his coffee as the screen said 'Level 2 complete'.

***

Story 3
He gave the college belle the special coffee he had worked on for years. She took one sniff. They woke up at his place the next morning.

  1. They are awesome. Story 1 is the best; sinister.

    1. Thank you. Story 3 is sheer mush, and hence I guess has a greater chance of winning it.

  2. was this contest a part of any promotional campaign for some coffee brand?
    the fist story has an uncanny resemblance with that story you wrote about the fate of the wife making serious spelling errors in sms.
    the second one is the most novel of the three.
    third one sounded like some date rape drug was introduced into the girl's coffee. :P

    1. I have no idea. Click the URL for the contest.
      1. It does.
      2. I just hope you meant something good, since you've left out the adjective.
      3. Indeed. Or something on those lines.

  3. He drank "Somras" coffee from the packet. His throat turned blue.

    Then he turned blue. The coroner said the coffee was actually "Halahal".

    1. Nice one. Very nice.

      However, just curious - you aren't reading Amish, right? X(

    2. Indeed I am not reading Amish - I just finished reading him. (I had to read Book 3 because I was giving him the benefit of the doubt.) Now to purge my mind of Amish, I will go see the "Hounds of Baskerville", which is merely inspired by a Conan Doyle creation.

    3. I had read Book 1 because I had learnt that it was good. I was shell-shocked.

      I read Book 2 because I had to be sure it wasn't a one-off, and he was really that bad.

      I have decided to skip Book 3. The fact that someone reads the first two books of a trilogy and skips the third is proof enough for, well, you know what.

  4. Awesome stories! Liked the third one and use of the word 'They' in the last paragraph is telling me it's not a rape drug, rather a love potion/aroma like the one which was sent to Harry in year 6!

    1. Yes. Absolutely not a rape drug, but a love potion of sorts.

    1. It's not really relevant here, but it's called Irish Coffee here as well. And they don't even put the whisky in it as well. And the word is not 'whiskey'.

    1. No, I did not. The winning article went like this:

      Sick of rhyming everything, Nihal started painting. Then spilled coffee on his beautiful landscape and sold it for $50000.
