The shorter the better but I don't want it to be the length of a lengthy joke. Also I would like to have a free access to it online. Genre doesn't matter ; I just want to learn to write fast for exams (Im one of those good students who struggle with handwriting, schools are so outdated it ain't funny, I mean can't you give an option after all my school HAS computers, why not use them ?). The story doesn't have to be good but that's not preferable since I do in fact like reading.
"When he awoke in a tomb three days later he would actually have believed that he rose from the dead" FREEDO about the resurrection of Jesus Christ

In fact, you can find a lot of great short stories on there.

The writer community on dA isn't as well known, but it exists. :D

Found a website: http://www.classicshorts.com...

One of my favourite short stories is Shooting an Elephant by George Orwell. There are a bunch of others but I can't remember the names of the authors right now.
