What is ur all time favourite short story?

I really like O. Henry's stories, some of them are so classic. Poe's short stories, especially "The Tell-Tale Heart", are also good

I love that story! I read it first in Bengali in a magazine and then in English in a text. It is so spooky...lol

And didi noone can write short stories better than Tagore. Take Hymanti or the one ends like "...moriya proman korilo je she more naai."
