55 word story: The sole inheritance

His life is a sorry tale of wretchedness and penury. Tattered clothes, soiled face and bony body!

An ornately-clad teenage boy arrives, flings a coin and whisks off in a fancy car he has presumably inherited from his super rich dad.

He gazes down dolefully at the latest catch by his begging bowl….his sole inheritance.

Oh, now that you have taken the trouble to go through my post, feel free to pen a few words- review, criticism or the much-loved adulation!
