Fixi Novo had a contest: Take a title from their latest short story anthology and write a 300-word short story based on it. Submit within 48 hours. Top 3 winners take home a free copy of the anthology.
I took 2 hours to write this, then submitted it at 2.30 AM. Spent the next day at work struggling to stay awake with a horrible migraine, but I won a free book so all is well!
[Edit] OH MY GOD this piece had no readers and BOOM a DD!? Thank you all for reading and faving! <3
