Default How can be possible? (Velvet)

I provide 5 reads to velvet (one read with 600 bp in size and the other four with 70 bp). After running , velvet returns an assembly with one contig with 572 bp in size. How can be possible an assembler returns a contig smaller than one of the reads???

Best regards,
