Advil ji, please release my headache by answering this question asap! Embarrassed LOL

Question:

So I've written my story and it's 249 words. It came out pretty crappy because I had to get rid of a lot of stuff. Ouch

But still, I was wondering, you know how it's a flashback?

Well my flashback is 250 words. But doesn't there also have to be a "come back to present" thing? So can I just add like, say 20 words for that? Ouch
